Well, if you’d like to find out how it all happened, join us on June 10th, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. as the men of Under the Radar Michigan make their way to the Cadillac-Wexford Public Library. Join Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman for an inspirational story of reinvention and discovery. They’ll tell you how they do it  ... why they do it ... and share great stories from their travels around Michigan. Be sure to bring your questions, your sense of adventure and your sense of humor, because when Tom and Jim start talking ... it’s a wild and crazy ride.

Under the Radar Michigan is an Emmy Award winning PBS television program that features the cool people, places and things that make Michigan a great place to be. It's fun ... fast paced ... and we talk to real Michigan people, and tell real Michigan success stories. We pack a ton of positive information and energy into every program.


Tom Daldin is an Emmy award winning producer, actor and writer, who has 

created programs that have aired across Michigan and around the U.S. on 
PBS. He has also won a number of “best actor” awards in both commercial 
television and industrial films.Growing up in Birmingham, Michigan, Tom 
has always been a fan of travel. At the age of 12 he joined the World 
Adventure Series Club at the Detroit Institute of Arts where his mother 
would drop him off to watch travel log films. After graduation from 
Oakland University with a degree in journalism, Tom, his wife Cathy and 
their children have turned Michigan into their vacation playground, 
exploring its many wonders and attractions. Tom loves people and loves 
where he lives.


Jim Edelman’s path to television producer took him from Radio Talk Show 

Producer to Radio Promotion Director to Radio Sales Manager to National 
Radio Sales (Jim loved radio).    Jim’s attention to detail, idea 
generation and the sales chops to keep the show funding flowing, help 
complete the circle of skills for Under the Radar Michigan.   UTR 
fulfills a lifelong mission to combine the best of his sales skills with 
the creative guy that’s always been lurking in the shadows.   His love of 
storytelling and searching or off-beat, little known stories really makes 
his day.   Jim attended many colleges but learned more working for the 
Detroit Pistons, as a Ski Instructor, Cycle Racing Producer, Tomato Picker 
and Bakers Assistant.    He lives in Salem, Michigan and insists that he’s 
quite normal despite owning three cats.  He’s also typing in the third 
person right now.
