An interview with Chris Patil, a Boston-based biologist and scientific writer who wants to go to Mars.
Special for 6/20
Tonight keep up with what is new in jazz. There's a fun new release with banjo player Bela Fleck and piano genius Marcus Roberts, and it's an eclectic and inspiring combination. We'll hear the romantic Gypsy band, Pearl Django, back with more enchanting music on their new CD "Eleven" and some down home hard bop grooves from Detroit trombonist Curtis Fuller. It's a wonderful variety of new music on the 9 O'clock Special tonight on K-Jazz. Jazz awakes tonight at 8.
