Oh Snap! We’re throwing it back to the totally sweet decade of the 1990s! Whether you remember wearing toe rings and pagers or jamming out to alternative rock bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Buffalo Tom, BostonTalks will take you down memory lane—and dive a little deeper too.
Senior instructor at Massachusetts College of Art and Design

Guitarist, singer and songwriter in the Buffalo Tom band
Bill Janovitz and friends formed the popular band Buffalo Tom while at the University of Massachusetts. They toured internationally in the 1990s and are still touring and recording today. Get the inside story about what it was like to be a rock star in the 1990s.
Third speaker to come
Hosted by Edgar B. Herwick III
WGBH News' Curiosity Desk
Edgar digs a little deeper into topics in the news, explores the off-beat and searches for answers to questions in the world around us. His radio features can be heard on 89.7 WGBH’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, and his television features can be seen on WGBH’s Greater Boston.
BostonTalks is WGBH’s smarter happy hour. It’s smarter because we feature three short talks, and it’s happy hour because the entire event takes place in a bar-like setting with lots of casual conversation. BostonTalks Happy Hour is a networking-style event with limited seating.
You must be at least 21 with a valid ID to attend. Beer, wine and hard cider are available for purchase.
This is a networking-style event. Limited seating will be available.
