Fenway Recording Sessions Presents: Willy Mason

With a sound that recalls Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, but with the cynicism of grunge and punk, nobody could believe wry singer-songwriter Willy Mason was only 19 when he appeared on the indie scene. Born and raised on Martha's Vineyard, Mason grew up with his parents' love of folk music. He loved it too, but his teen years brought Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine into his life.

Cry Baby / This Is All Now / Sandlot Heroes / Crash the Party

JEFF FORSHAW: THE QUANTUM UNIVERSE

Date: 
Wednesday, January 23, 2013 - 4:00pm
Program: 

The concepts of quantum physics seem to fly in the face of everything we know about how the universe is supposed to work. Particles behave like waves. A particle can be anywhere in the universe at a later time. A particle traveling from Point A to Point B does not move in a straight line but along all possible paths. And that is just for starters. Yet this is the way the universe really works and quantum physics can predict the fate of a star or explain why a laser works. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with JEFF FORSHAW, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Manchester.
