Inquiry: PROUST WAS A NEUROSCIENTIST

Program: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 27, 2008 - 4:52pm

 Writer, journalist and editor JONAH LEHRER has a new book about artists of the 19th Century whose works anticipated the discoveries of 20th Century science. Tonight on Inquiry we discuss how legendary French master chef Auguste Escoffier, inventor of veal stock and Peach Melba, discovered the chemistry of “deliciousness” and how novelist George Eliot got her heart broken and then wrote about the biology of freedom. Tune in for a discussion both lively and totally unexpected. Lehrer’s book is PROUST WAS A NEUROSCIENTIS

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.
