Adventures in Karl Haas

Jeff Haas pays tribute, and talks back, to his father

by Lawrence Cosentino
Sunday afternoon’s tribute to the 100th birthday of Karl Haas, the urbane host of Detroit-based “Adventures in Good Music” who died in 2005, is no stiff retrospective. The Haas story, the good music and a few lingering father-son is sues are far from finished.
