Dark side of the eye (Adam Cole/WNYC)

We spent the first part of the show talking about the blues, and bluesman Robert Johnson. But what about the yellows and the reds and the rest of the colors? Well, Jad Abumrad and his Radiolab cohorts have been thinking about color recently -- and in fact asked a number of bands to record versions of songs about the various colors.  We hear a few excerpts.

during this great segment I can't help but think of th Stradivarius violin and it's (supposed) perfect tone. th type of wood obviously is credited for th sound, but some have suggested th varnish used as well. so, all of this got me to thinking about "The Red Violin," a terrific movie. if you haven't seen it, it's time you did.
