Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, November 22, 2012 - 10:00am

Insects are all around us in the air, on land, in the water and even in our houses. There are thousands of species that live in New England alone. Most of us are familiar with butterflies, moths, grasshoppers and fleas. But how many of you have heard of Blister Beetles or Snow Scorpionflies? Our guest tonight on Inquiry is TOM MURRAY, natural historian, writer and photographer. His latest book has been more than a decade in the making. INSECTS OF NEW ENGLAND AND NEW YORK is a field guide to over 1250 distinctive insects found in our area illustrated mostly with Tom’s own photographs. Tune in and learn about the diverse and wild world of the insects around us. Imagoe of a Snow Scorpionfly by Tom Murray

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.
