Hermann Rorschach’s inkblots are a psychoanalytic test recognized the world over. “For many years the test was hyped as an X-Ray of the soul. It’s not and it wasn’t originally meant to be.” writes our guest tonight. So, how did Rorschach develop his famous diagnostic test and how did he envision they be used? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with writer and translator DAMION SEARLS about his new book THE INKBLOTS: HERMANN RORSCACH, HIS ICONIC TEST, AND THE POWER OF SEEING.

Vocalist/composer John Boutte, like many of his fellow New Orleaneans, grew up surrounded by music in the streets and in his home, but unlike most of his fellow natives, he went on to a career in the military after graduating with a degree in business.  With influences ranging from Stevie Wonder to Nat Cole, John’s vocal style is swinging and unique.  John wrote and sang the theme for the HBO series “Treme” but sees the fame he’s gained from this as giving him freedom to make the music he wants, rather than a road to stardom.

Tonight we will play nothing but one band playing the songs and music that another band already recorded: COVERS!.

Tune in and find out! Host: UNCLE MARK.

Join host Tom Shaker as we celebrate the music of the "prince of soul." Gaye's music comes from the heart of a tortured soul. It's parts personal, social commentary, sensual and still timely today. Songs like "What's Going On," "How Sweet It Is(To Be loved By You)," and "Sexual Healing" just scape the surface of his musical legacy. It all starts at 7pm!
