Ellen Prager: SEX, DRUGS AND SEASLIME

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 2:00pm

Researcher and writer ELLEN PRAGER has written what amounts to a “tell all” of life in the oceans. This features unusual creatures with very bizarre sex lives and lots and lots of slime. Prager has also included some amazing notes on why these creatures, strange and weird as they are, are important to humanity. Tune into tonight and learn how hagfish can tie themselves into knots; why a giant sea slug is critical to research on the human brain and why you should never, EVER eat the lobster’s tomalley. Prager’s vastly entertaining  account of marine life is titled SEX, DRUGS AND SEASLIME: THE OCEAN’S ODDEST CREATURES AND WHY THEY MATTER.

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.
