What’s the oldest song in the world? Did Ben Franklin invent a musical instrument that drove people mad? What are the actual lyrics to the classic rock song “Louie Louie”? All these fascinating stories are in writer and documentary film maker RICK BEYER’S latest rollicking compendium THE GREATEST MUSIC STORIES NEVER TOLD: 100 TALES FROM MUSIC HISTORY TO ASTONICH, BEWILDER AND STUPEFY. Tune and find out where to find the largest man-made dog in the world and other wild tales.

Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome HONEE HESS, Director of Education at the Worcester Art Museum and KATRINA STACEY, Assistant Curator of Education at the Worcester Art Museum. They introduce an upcoming exciting exhibition at the museum titled IN SEARCH OF JULIEN HUDSON: A FREE ARTIST OF COLOR IN PRE-CIVIL WAR NEW ORLEANS. This complex exhibition, which involved “detection, speculation and invention” attempts to piece together the details of the life of this important American artist. This is Part One of a series about this show.
