Alzheimer's Disease: We're talking about the new Silver Alert, which Gov. Patrick signed into law this month- and the latest Alzheimer's research- from new tests to diagnose the disease, to the revised Alzheimer's guidelines. We're joined by Boston Globe reporter Charles P. Pierce, whose article, "The Devil you might know" appeared in Boston Globe Magazine on Aug. 8., and Bernice Osborne, a caretaker for her mother with Alzheimer's.
The Mendes Brothers: World music has taken on new meaning thanks to Cape Verde-born and Brockton-based musicians, composers, and humanitarians, Ramiro and Joao Mendes. They join us in-studio to talk about the West African music tradition and their unique sound that incorporates everything from blues, to samba, to reggae.
