HUGH ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS: ANATOMIES

Date: 
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 4:00pm
Program: 

“Our body is a site of continual invention” writes tonight’s guest on Inquiry, HUGH ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS. His new book ANATOMIES: A CULTURAL HISTORY OF THE HUMAN BODY is a wonderful and surprising look at our bodies and it’s various parts, and what people through the centuries have thought about them. 

Jeff Guinn

Date: 
Sunday, August 4, 2013 - 10:30pm
Program: 

More than forty years ago Charles Manson and his mostly female commune killed nine people, among them the pregnant actress Sharon Tate. It was the culmination of a criminal career that author Jeff Guinn traces back to Manson’s childhood.  Childhood friends, cellmates, and even some members of the Manson Family have provided new information about Manson’s life. Guinn has made discoveries about the night of the Tate murders, answering unresolved questions, such as why one person on the property where the murders occurred was spared.

Darlene Love

Date: 
Monday, July 29, 2013 - 7:00pm
Program: 

Possibly the most prolific singer of the 1960s, Phil Spector "discovered" her but Darlene Love's career is almost unreal. She's sung background for Elvis, Frank Sinatra & The Beach Boys, to name just a few. Her singing with The Blossoms became the standard for girl groups in the 60s and she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Join host Tom Shaker as he celebrates the music of Darlene Love starting at 7pm!!

From Smaller Industrial Cities to Raptors

Date: 
Sunday, August 4, 2013 - 9:00pm
Program: 

Many of the smaller industrial cities of America are in serious decline due to the forces of de-industrialization, outsourcing, globalization and white flight. Many of these medium-sized urban areas like Detroit, Buffalo, Grand Rapids and Akron have suffered decades of neglect because most of the national attention and money has gone to the big urban centers. But can there be a future for these cities?
