Meg and her mom Sandra are heading to Detroit to do a little cross-border shopping and take in a Tigers game. But Sandra’s passport has expired, and they are turned back. An odd encounter on the Windsor waterfront leads them into a wild night of time travel, rum smuggling, a near drowning, hijackers, customs officials thirsty for bribes, and a chance encounter with controversial baseball legend Ty Cobb. The sound effects and music in this original radio drama will take you back to the 1920s—a time when “heading for the wild west” meant sneaking into Michigan with a boatload of Canadian contraband.
