“Faster than a speeding bullet…More powerful than a locomotive….Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Superman!” Tonight on Inquiry we talk with writer LARRY TYE. He was an award-winning journalist at the Boston Globe and a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. His latest book is a complete biography of SUPERMAN: THE HIGH-FLYING HISTORY OF AMERICA’S MOST ENDURING SUPER HERO. From his humble beginnings, created by lonely nerds Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, through decades of comics, radio shows, television and numerous films, Superman remains the greatest super hero creation of the twentieth century. Tune in and find out just some of the secrets of the world’s mightiest mortal.

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.
