- About Us
From an old converted barbershop inside the area's largest all-nude strip club comes The Sit Down with resident host, Cydney Gardner-Brown (and assistive co-hosts Mitchel Dipzinski and Domonique Witten). The Sit Down is a series of spoken and recorded conversations featuring the voices of college students. Conversations are focused on capturing a wide array of perspectives regarding race, pop-culture, politics, gender/sexuality, and more. These discussions attempt to seize the essence of those “deep” 3 AM conversations had in the hallways and common areas where college students dwell and dream. The Sit Down will be a space for learning on all sides, a beyond-the-classroom experience, if you will, that nurtures diversity of thought, engagement, and social awareness. We, the next generation of firebrands, aim to demonstrate that through dialogue and understanding, all voices may be heard and appreciated. `The Sit Down broadcasts bi-weekly on Friday mornings from 10:00 AM-11:00 AM on AM1700 to the ears of Ypsilanti and to the rest of the free world online at www.am1700radio.com.
