GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — With Michigan barber shops and salons still closed, this week’s vintage “On The Michigan Road” feature shows you haircuts — or at least the sheep equivalent.

In this report, which originally aired Jan. 5, 1988, Dick Evans visited a farm when it was time to shear the sheep.

Between 1971 and 1991, Dick Evans filed his popular “On The Michigan Road” reports from all over the state. They featured everything from county fairs to people with offbeat hobbies and collections to Michigan’s most beautiful locations. He died in October 1991 at the age of 66 after more than 40 years in broadcasting.
