Last Show Recap

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

A Year of Invention

A Year of Invention

The latest New York Times Magazine(1) (requires free registration) features a series of articles about some of 2005's most fascinating ideas, inventions and concepts. Among them, are a Dutch technology called vOICe(2), that allows the blind to "see" via sounds, an LCD screen(3) that shows different images depending on the angle, and a privacy device called Babble that transforms office cubicle chatter into "a flow of meaningless mumblings."
