All aboard! Tonight, Inquiry is joined by “Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park” curator NICK CAPASSO. Nick has organized the museum’s latest exhibition called TRAINSCAPE: INSTALLATION ART FOR MODEL RAILROADS. This exhibition has actual “O” scale locomotives chugging their way through twelve contemporary artists’ installations. Nick will explain how the museum keeps the artwork running on time and what “Dyna-chuff” is. Also in the studio are two of the artists from this dynamic show. RALPH HELMICK is a renowned public art sculptor. His piece has a train huffing and puffing through the words of a Wallace Stevens poem. ELLEN WETMORE is a multi-media artist. Her trainscape is a hilarious post-birth meditation on what happened to her body. Go to: further information.

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.
