Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 3:30pm

Inquiry welcomes CHET WILLIAMSON, writer, musician and WICN host. Tonight he talks about his two great blogs: WORCESTER SONGWRITERS OF THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK and JAZZ RIFFING ON A LOST WORCESTER. These two well-researched and entertaining blogs uncover a generally unknown history of the Worcester area and the songwriters, musicians, poets and other artists that were born here. Tonight Chet discusses Gary Lee Usher who wrote the Beach Boys hit “In My Room”, Robert Benchley’s wild radio show that he did with Artie Shaw and much more. Chet’s blogs can be found at:
