Robert Samuels

Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 10:30pm

It could happen to any of us. You wake up one morning with slight weakness in your left leg and by the end of the day you're in your local hospital's ICU with tubes running into your arms,nose and down your throat. You've lost your ability to speak and move. You say "yes" or "no" by blinking your eyes. It seems like the ultimate nightmare but it's the terrifying reality of mismanaged medical care. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Robert Samuels as he recounts his horrifying treatment in one of America's top hospitals.

David Bodenhamer

Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 10:30pm

The Constitution was born out of revolution. In fact the framers created the Constitution to reflect this and for future generations to react to their times. However, many will argue that some have taken this to the extreme. Case in point, "The Occupy" movement. What's your interpretation? Tune in this Sunday evening when Al is joined by Constitutional scholar and author David Bodenhamer. You have a perfect right to agree or disagree.

Stuart Isacoff & Alexandra Lord

The piano is 300 years old and from the time of its creation it has cast a spell over musicians and audiences alike. The piano changed the ways in which musicians toured and presented themselves to the public and the piano changed audiences expectations about presentation and showmanship. From Mozart’s first concertos to Jerry Lee Lewis’ incendiary keyboard techniques, the piano has captured the mind and soul of musicians and listeners all over the world like no other musical instrument. Tune in tonight for a wide-ranging talk with pianist and writer STUART ISACOFF.
