The physicist who pioneered work in electrical science, inventing the “voltaic pile” battery, Alessandro Volta was born on this date in 1745. If it was not for Volta’s battery and electric current, we would only have “unplugged music.” Our playlist includes some favorite unplugged rock tunes to celebrate. You can use Volta’s electrical current to tune in his playlist on Crosscurrents, 2/18 at 8 am. or…listen to the live on air web stream: http://www.ktoo.org/krnn
You might notice that Gavin and Wyatt are hiding behind Alessandro Volta. It appears that they have joined the inventor in his electric lab. Apparently nobody told the dogs that Volta is know for his battery, and not his biscuit.
