I'm getting a fair number of inquiries from listeners curious to know if it's true that Deval Patrick, the front-running Democratic nominee for Governor of Massachusetts, is the son of saxophonist Pat Patrick, who spent many years playing with Sun Ra.  

He is.

Here's the link to a Boston Globe profile of the Chicago-born 49 year-old.
