Tonight on Inquiry we talk again with CARY GINELL, award-winning writer, jazz historian and discographer. This time around Gary talks about his latest jazz biography MR B: THE MUSIC AND LIFE OF BILLY ECKSTINE. Billy Eckstine is little remembered today, but in the 40s and 50s he was a signer as popular as Sinatra and Cosby. He was a fashion plate, a crooner, a band leader and a musician whose amazing career spanned seven decades. Tune in and find out what the bobby soxers were all screaming about.

Tonight we welcome back writer and expert on extinct birds and animals ERROL FULLER. His latest book is LOST ANIMALS: EXTINCTION AND THE PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD. Though many people know Errol Fuller as the author of books about the Dodo and the Great Auk, in fact his real passion is painting. Tonight we focus on Fuller’s artworks and talk about some of his other books including the upcoming VOODOO SALON about the artistry of taxidermy.
