Birds are important indicators of the health of an environment. Mass Audubon has just published an important summary of what is known about the health of bird populations in Massachusetts, what species are increasing, what species are declining and what habitats are endangered. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome JOAN WALSH, Director of Bird Monitoring at Mass Audubon and one of the authors of STATE OF THE BIRDS 2011: DOCUMENTATING CHANGES IN MASSACHUSETTS BIRD LIFE. If you love natural history, are concerned about the future of open space in the state and especially if you enjoy birds, be sure to tune in.

The relationship between art and architecture is a complex and at times an uneasy one. In the twentieth century a number of artists works have focused on commenting about our relationship to the physical structures in which we work and live. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome back DINA DEITSCH, curator at the DECORDOVA SCULPTURE PARK AND MUSEUM. Tonight she talks about a current large and ambitious show at the museum titled TEMPORARY STRUCTURES, that involves built environments, performance art and video work that all comments of buildings, houses and museums.

Wolfman Conspiracy, Seed

Amherst’s Wolfman Conspiracy is kind of a surprise … a reggae band with a bit of a growl in its throat. There’s a low, gravelly funk that underscores the band’s island-inspired groove and gives an edge to a genre that’s often made milquetoast in American hands. The low growl in the music is echoed by the growl in singer Dom Mazzolli’s voice, a nice counterpoint to brassy, inherently upbeat trumpets. The overall effect is engaging and a lot of fun.
