Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 9:30am

Ancient Egyptian culture and artifacts have mesmerized people since Ancient Greece and Rome. And why not? Ancient Egypt has pyramids, the Sphinx, hieroglyphs, cool looking deities, scarabs and of course mummies. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with BOB BRIER, Senior Research Fellow at Long Island University/LIU Post about his rollicking cultural history EGYPTOMANIA: OUR THREE THOUSAND YEAR OBSESSION WITH THE LAND OF THE PHAROAHS.  Tune in tonight and learn why it seemed every country wanted an obelisk, what is the best film about Ancient Egypt and much, much more.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
