Another Marriage, SpongeBob The Musical and Jimmy “Bo” Horne

The PopCulteer
July 21, 2023

Your PopCulteer is in the midst of an interesting week. Sunday morning I got back from a fun, if tornado-heavy, trip to Chicago. Then I learned of some breaking news coming out of San Diego that I’ll have to tell you about next week when I can get all the details. I also had a dilated eye exam that has me working in short spurts because my eyes recover very slowly due to Myasthenia Gravis, and looking at a computer monitor is like staring into a high-powered spotlight.

That should clear up in time for me to cover the opening of The Peanuts exhibit in Wheeling Saturday. Then Sunday I’ll be conducting a new interview with David Synn for next week’s RFC, and a week from today The PopCulteer will be filled with a photo essay of a place we visited in Chicago.

But today I’m going to offer up quick takes on a couple of shows we saw in the Windier than usual City, and then bring you notes and the playlist for Friday’s new episode of MIRRORBALL on The AIR.


A week ago last Wednesday Mel and I took in a matinee performance of Another Marriage at Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago. This production starred Judy Greer and Ian Barford and is the writing debut of Steppenwolf ensemble member Kate Arrington, who coincidentally was in the cast of the play, The Qualms in 2014.

That’s a coincidence because Mel and I got married on the set of The Qualms, but that’s another marriage that doesn’t really have anything else to do with Another Marriage.

To quote the program, “Another Marriage is an intimate and beautifully rendered portrait of an ever-evolving relationship that may never be quite finished.”

It’s a great play and an impressive writing debut for Arrington. She mixes elements of romantic comedy with drama and a healthy dose of snark and reality. And the play’s structure is novel and engrossing, beginning near the end of a decades-long relationship, and then flashing back to the beginning and the high and low points of two people’s lives together.

This is Steppenwolf, so the performances are all world-class. With a great script, Greer and Barford bring their characters to life in a realistic and appealing way.

Greer and Barford are simply perfect in their complex and very genuine roles.

Another Marriage is directed by Terry Kinney, a co-founder of Steppenwolf whose resume is longer than this post is supposed to be. While Greer and Barford shine as the two central characters, they were well supported by Nicole Scimeca as their daughter, and Caroline Neff in multiple roles.

This was our first play in the new space that Steppenwolf opened during the pandemic, and it’s an amazing venue, with seating in the round and very impressive stagecraft, with sinking platforms in the stage and entrances that can be made from four sides of the hall.

Another Marriage has had it’s run extended to July 30, though Barford will be replaced by another fine actor, Tim Hopper, after July 23. If you’re in Chicago, I can’t recommend it highly enough.


I raved about The SpongeBob Musical back when Mel and I saw it on Broadway five years ago, and we were both curious to see how Kokandy Productions would translate such a big show to such an intimate performance space in the basement of the Chopin Theater.

We saw their take on Sweeney Todd last December, and were astounded at how they managed to fit the show into such a tiny space with no loss of quality. They did this with an amazingly talented cast and crew, and terrific direction.

I’m happy to say that they managed to do this with The SpongeBob Musical, too. Without a lavish budget, they managed to capture all the charm of the show and compress it into a small performance area with no problem.

In fact, they even managed to stick in a few more references to the SpongeBob Squarepants cartoon than the original show did. Major kudos have to go to the director, JD Caudill, and to the various art and sound designers: Jonathan Berg-Einhorn, Jakob Abderhalden, G “Max” Maxin IV, Patrick McGuire, Steve Labedz, Ele Matelan, Michael J. Patrick, Keith Ryan, Sydney Genco and Lolly Extract.

However, the biggest key to the success of this production is the cast. Frankie Leo Bennett is simply perfect as “SpongeBob SquarePants.” Isabel García offers up a creative new take on “Patrick Star.” Sarah Patin as “Sandy Cheeks” captures the spirit of the cartoon character. Quinn Rigg really stands out as “Squidward Q. Tentacles” and you don’t even miss the two extra legs. Parker Guidry treats the audience to a wild version of “Sheldon J. Plankton” that combines the diabolical copepod with a dash of Dr. Frank N Furter.

I could go on and single out every cast member and every ensemble member, but it’s killing my eyes to type this, so I will simply say that everyone in this production is talented enough to have stepped into the roles on Broadway.

That’s an enthusiastic “thumbs up,” in case you couldn’t tell.

The SpongeBob Musical is running at The Chopin Theater until September 3, and it’s a great storefront space (and right across the street from the Division stop on The Blue Line). If you’re in Chicago and want to see a great performance of one of the most fun musicals of the last century get thee to The Chopin.

Jimmy “Bo” Horne On MIRRORBALL

Friday at 2 PM on The AIR, Mel Larch devotes the full hour of MIRRORBALL to the music of Disco legend, Jimmy “Bo” Horne.  The AIR is PopCult‘s sister radio station. You can hear these shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player found elsewhere on this page.

Despite only having one top ten hit on the pop charts during Disco’s heyday, Horne dominated the danceclub charts and his music has been used in movies and TV shows for the last four decades. Even today his work is being sampled by dozens of hip hop artists and turns up in video games.

Born in West Palm Beach, Horne went into event planning and artist management following his Disco career, and is still putting on great shows all over Florida. Mel brings you an assortment of Disco classics that you may not even realize that you’ve been listening to, since they’ve been sampled so many times.

Check out the playlist…

STUFF TO DO for Peanuts In Wheeling

Your PopCulteer and his lovely wife are headed back to The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum this Saturday for the official opening of a huge collection of Peanuts memorabilia. This has been in the works for a couple of years, and we’ve seen bits and pieces, but this weekend they go full-blown with “Dr. Mercer’s Too Cool To Smoke/Vape” exhibit.

The display will feature the massive collection of Peanuts-related stuff amassed by Wheeling physician Dr. William Mercer over forty years. Aside from admission to the museum, the event is free of cost and will be an all-day affair including games for kids, souvenir hand-outs and exhibit tours hosted by Dr. Mercer himself. The tours will be every hour on the hour from 9 AM to 4 PM, Saturday.

There will even be a piano mini-concert by 11-year-old “Schroeder,” Seth Williams, who will perform classic Peanuts music by Vince Guaraldi as well as his own Peanuts inspired pieces.

On opening day, Snoopy items will fill up an entire banquet hall. There will be holiday-themed Snoopy items filling up display cases with Snoopy trophies on top, and the walls will be lined with Peanuts comic strips.

Dr. Mercer’s collection was largely assembled with patient’s gifts, beginning in 1987 after he designed a Snoopy-themed pediatric room at his practice.

For more information, you should check out a great article in The Wheeling Intellgencer about the opening.

Mel and I have been seeing bits and pieces of this collection at the museum over the last two years, and it’ll be cool to get a bigger look at this awesome collection. We;ll bring you photos of the event when we get back over the weekend.


Your PopCulteer is pinched between deadlines, doctor’s appointments and projects this week, so we have a smaller than usual list of suggestions for your local amusement this week. We’ll feature a bonus thing to do tomorrow. Meanwhile, here are a few suggestions of things worth leaving the house for in and around Charleston this weekend…

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Friday it’s Sonia Tavi. Saturday nathon Foster entertains the crowd at Charleston’s beloved Bookstore/Coffee Shop/Art Gallery.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this weekend to tell you about. Thursday at 5:30 PM, Swingstein and Robin return with Swing for a good cause. Friday Tim Courts plays during happy hour.  Later on Friday the Glass presents American Jetset, and the first fifteen people through the door get a free CD!  Saturday at 9:30, Virginia groove trio Threesound comes to The Empty Glass. Sunday, Jonathan Foster makes his way from Taylor Books to The Glass at 10 PM. Next Monday it’s Open Mic Night at 9 PM.

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. It’s still a going concern. And now there are seasonal allergies, the flu, heatstroke, crazed political candidates, intelligent dogs in flying doghouses, people who care about college sports and other damned good reasons to be careful. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for Friday and Saturday, roughly in order…

New Music From Brian Diller, Buni Muni, Wobbly, Jim Lange and More On RFC.

We’re in the middle of July, and once again we’re bringing you our regular Tuesday programming on The AIR that means it’s time for a new  Radio Free Charleston and a classic edition of The Swing Shift. You simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay here, and  listen to the cool embedded player found elsewhere on this page.  

We have three full hours of new stuff (sorta) this week. We do go way back and revive 20 minutes of a March, 1990 show in our third hour, but that was due to popular demand, so our hands were sort of tied in the matter.

We open the show with a newly-released tune from our old friend, Brian Diller. This one dates back to 1989/90, and the basic tracks were recorded above Gorby’s Music Shop. We then have new music from Buni Muni, and great local tracks from Sean Richardson, Massing, The Tom Batchelor Band, Matt Mullins & The Bringdowns, Jim Lange and more. Our first hour veers a bit into Americana/Country for a set that includes a couple of memorable cover tunes.

In our second hour, during a set of instrumental music, we bring you a couple of tracks courtesy of the newly-minted House of Tabu record label: The Tentakills and The Madeira offer up new generation surf music with a lounge/tiki edge to it.

Hour three sees some classic free-formatting, along with almost a half-hour chunk of a March 1990 Radio Free Charleston Broadcast that folks keep asking me to share again.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store. Live links will take you to the artist’s pages so you can find out more about them, and maybe even buy their music and find out where to see them perform live…

We plan to return with new episodes of The Swing Shift next week, but after spending last week dodging tornadoes in Chicago, your humble blogger/radio guy was just a little too worn out.

You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 8 AM, Friday at 10 AM and 8 PM and Saturday afternoon, only on The AIR . You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.

Monday Morning Art: 44th

Are you sick of New York City yet? I’m not, but this is probably our last NYC-inspired piece for a while.

This week’s art is a quicker and tinier study inspired by what I saw on 44th Street in New York when I went there back in May.  Like last week, it was done on cheap sketchbook paper using oil pastel crayons.

I may revisit this later with a larger piece. This one is actually probably half the size of a comic book page.

To see it bigger try clicking HERE.

Over in radioland, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a classic episode of Psychedelic Shack, and then at 3 PM a classic edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past half-century, Prognosis.  You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player elsewhere on this page.

Psychedelic Shack can be heard every Monday at 2 PM, with replays Tuesday at 9 AM, Wednesday at 10 PM, Friday at 1 PM,  and Saturday at 9 AM. You can hear Prognosis on The AIR Monday at 3 PM, with replays Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM, Thursday at Noon, and Saturday at 10 AM. You can hear two classic episodes of the show Sunday at 2 PM.

At 8 PM you can hear Steve Harvey on last week’s episode of The Comedy Vault.

Tonight at 9 PM the Monday Marathon presents ten hours of Nigel Pye’s Psychedelic Shack.

The RFC Flashback: Episode Thirty-Four

From January 2008 comes the thirty-fourth episode of Radio Free Charleston, “Lucha Mask Shirt (Show Without Words #1) which featured music from Charleston’s Blues legend Raymond Wallace, WV’s Latin Stars Duo Divertido, and Parkersburg’s master of the 12-string Josh Buskirk. This episode was online briefly as part of the RFC Archives MySpace page, but went down with that ship, and is now available again for the first time in well over five years.

In addition to the music, we also had fresh animation from RFC Big Shot Frank Panucci and a special visit from the then Commander in Chief. Best of all, this episode of RFC featureed NO VOCALS! The music is all instrumental, as is the animation, and even the President doesn’t have much to say.

Of course there were the host segments to contend with. I hosted the show with duct tape over my mouth. There are subtitles for my mumbling. We even recorded a special version of the theme song, and non-verbal jingles for this show. A lot of effort went into this as an afterthought.

We remembered to record them while we were shooting the host bits on the fifth floor of the Quarrier street parking building at the Charleston Town Center, and the new jingles and theme were recorded in the car while RFC Big Shot Melanie Larch and I were warming up between segments. It was very, very cold  when we shot these.

The “Show Without Words” became an irregular feature of Radio Free Charleston, with three more wordless episodes in the ensuing years. This one was the first. We sort of got the hang of it later. You can read the original production notes HERE.

Chicago photos and The Teardrop Explodes on Sydney’s Big Electric Cat

The PopCulteer
July 14, 2023

It’s a bit hectic behind the scenes here at the moment, in fact, it’s after midnight, Friday morning, and your humble blogger is sitting in a fancy hotel in Chicago, updating this week’s column, which I wrote last week, to include a photo essay of my trip to the Windy City, so far.

Mrs. PopCulteer and I have been here since Monday. We’ve taken in a great new play at Steppenwolf and a killer take on The SpongeBob Musical at the Chopin (by Kokandy), and I’ll tell you about those shows when I get back home.  Later Friday the plan is to maybe go to a comic book signing by Svengoolie, and, weather permitting, maybe take in a Chicago Dogs game.

The weather permitting is a bit of a big deal, since Wednesday, right after we got back to the hotel from seeing a matinee performance of Another Marrriage at Steppenwolf, Chicago decided to treat us to a meteorological air show, with possibly as many as  eight tornadoes (Update: There were eleven)  hitting the Chicagoland area. We watched from the 23rd floor as Chicago became The Windy AF City.

Luckily it missed us, and while there was damage, no injuries were reported, but it made for an interesting early evening.

Here are just a few photos from the trip, so I can test out the concept of posting from the road…

A Batman angle of River North

Someday we will…eat at Joe’s.

That box thing being lowered rapidly by a crane from atop a tall building was about the size of a U Haul truck. It came down forty floors in about thirty seconds.

Tribune Towers, from back when we had newspapers.

Flags, all blowing in the same direction.

We finally found this place. Didn’t eat there yet, though.

Mrs. PopCulteer takes wing.

Yours truly tries the same thing. BTW, you’d be surprised how many people in Chicago recognize the Buc ees hat.

The building formerly known as Hancock Tower.

From inside the Tornado Warning that affected 3.7 million people Wednesday night.

Caution: Exploding Teardrops

Also this week all we have to tell you about a new episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. The AIR is PopCult’s sister radio station. You can hear these shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player at the top right column of this blog.

At 2 PM, we bring you a encore of one of two Valentines Weekend episodes of MIRRORBALL from 2022.  If all goes according to plan, you’ll hear the second episode that debuted that day in two weeks. You can read all about both shows HERE 

You can hear MIRRORBALL every Friday at 2 PM, with replays throughout the following week, Saturday at 9 PM, Sunday at 11 PM, Monday at 9 AM and Tuesday at 1 PM.

At 3 PM, Sydney Fileen graces us with special mixtape-style new episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. This week Sydney delves deep into the history of the enigmatic New Wave/Psychedelic band, The Teardrop Explodes.

The Teardrop Explodes formed in Liverpool in 1978, taking their name from a caption in issue #77 of Daredevil, a Marvel comic book published earlier in the decade.

With vocals and lyrics by Julian Cope, who would go on to reach underground deity status following the break up of this band, The Teardrop Explodes also included David Balfe and Troy Tate, who would go on to become notable record producers.

In these two hours Sydney will play the hits, some deep album cuts and quite a few rarities and live tracks from the recently released The Teardrop Explodes boxed set, Culture Bunker.

Check out the playlist…

STUFF, The Kind of Which TO DO

We may still be in the hot and muggy part of the year, or we might have entered the nasty storm phase, either way you can be sure that many people are looking for STUFF TO DO so that they don’t lose all their social graces.  Here are a few suggestions (which are a little sparse this week because we’re preparing this post way in advance)…

CharCon is happening again this weekend at The Clay Center. You can find out more about Charleston’s long-running gaming convention HERE.

Thursday night at The Alban Arts Center, Black Empire Productions presents, for one night only, Abortion Weekend.  Written by multifaceted creatives Jairis Carter and Mareshah Dupree, Abortion Weekend is a hilarious, honest, and heartfelt representation of the young, gifted, and black femme experience in America today. Adulthood hits preacher’s daughter Dazia (Jairis Carter) full force as she unexpectedly gets pregnant the summer before her senior year of college. Her best friend and ride or die Ayanna (Mareshah Dupree) takes it upon herself to plan a wild and crazy “Abortion Weekend” in order to terminate the pregnancy.

This two-person show is conducted as a tag team comedy show, as the audience is thrust into a world of vibrant larger than life personalities, magical happenings, and a friendship of the ages. The play is masterfully crafted with true to life vernacular, spoken word poetry, and an immersive sound and lighting design. For more information, check out the graphic below.

Live Music is back at Taylor Books. There is no cover charge, and shows start at 7:30 PM.  Friday it’s Andrew Adkins. Saturday Brandon Costello entertains the crowd at Charleston’s beloved Bookstore/Coffee Shop/Art Gallery.

The World Famous Empty Glass Cafe has some great stuff this weekend, and you can find a complete schedule by visiting their website.

There’s also a celebration of fifty years of Hip Hop happening that I just found out about…

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. It’s still a going concern. And now there are seasonal allergies, the flu, invaders from the planet Gor, wayward county officials, unfrozen cavemen, crooked land developers and other damned good reasons to be careful. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for coming weekend, roughly in order…

Beatles Blast and Curtain Call Go Oliver The Place

For yet another Wednesday afternoon, The AIR brings you new episodes of Curtain Call and Beatles Blast.  You can tune in at the website, or just stay right here and  listen to the convenient embedded radio player lurking elsewhere on this page.

At 2 PM (EDT) Beatles Blast brings you another mixtape show with a flimsy premise.  The show begins with the Beatles classic, “In My Life” and then, inspired by one of that song’s lyrics, brings you “places I remember.”  In other words, it’s the Fab Four, together and solo, singing songs about places they’ve been.

Luckily, with The Beatles, even if the premise is flimsy, the music will always be great.

Beatles Blast can be heard every Wednesday at 2 PM, with replays Thursday at 11 PM, Friday at 1 PM,  and Saturday afternoon.

At 3 PM (EDT) on Curtain Call, Mel Larch salutes the musical, Oliver!, 60 years after it made its Broadway debut.

Oliver! is a coming-of-age stage musical, with book, music and lyrics by Lionel Bart. The musical is based upon the 1838 novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.

The msuical premiered at the Wimbledon Theatre, southwest London in 1960 before opening in the West End, where it enjoyed a record-breaking long run. Oliver! opened on Broadway, after being brought to the U.S. by producer David Merrick in 1963. .

In 1963 Lionel Bart received the Tony Award for Best Original Score. Many songs are well known to the public, such as “Food, Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself” and “I’d Do Anything”.

Mel brings you the 1963 Broadway cast recording, which featured child actor Bruce Prochnik in the title role alongside Georgia Brown, Danny Sewell and Barry Humphries, reprising their West End roles as Nancy, Bill Sikes and Mr. Sowerberry, respectively, and Clive Revill as Fagin and Michael Goodman as The Arftul Dodger.

Curtain Call can be heard on The AIR Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 8 AM, Friday at 10 AM, Saturday at 8 PM and Monday at 9 AM. A six-hour marathon of classic episodes can be heard Sunday evening starting at 6 PM, and an all-night marathon of Curtain Call episodes can be heard Wednesday nights, beginning at Midnight.

Also on The AIR, Wednesday at 11 PM,  The Comedy Vault brings you an hour of Beckley native Steve Harvey’s stand-up comedy.
