Focus, or Focus 580, was WILL Radio's flagship talk program from 1981 until 2014. David Inge was the host from 1981 until his retirement in 2012. Always engaging, the program acted as a resource for citizens to directly question politicians and candidates as well as keep up on the arts, science, health, and even the latest from well-known novelists.
The Focus archive below offers thousands of great interviews and serves as a time capsule and a great resource for researchers and those just curious about how influential people spoke of important topics as they were happening.
Mars is one of the brightest and most beautiful planets—and it may also hold the key to the question of whether life exists elsewhere in the universe. Today on Focus we're joined by astronomer and writer Ken Croswell. His new book Magnificent Mars talks about the geology, topography, and atmosphere of the planet, as well as the spacecraft due to land on its surface within the next few weeks. What do we hope to learn from these latest missions to the Red Planet? This morning, Croswell will be answering that question—and more.
