With a lingering case of Winter Crud hanging around stately Radio Free Charleston Mannor, we have hit Wednesday afternoon, and The AIR still manages to bring you new episodes of Curtain Call and Beatles Blast that are both mixtapes so that your respective hosts won’t have to talk much.  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 a one-hour mixtape  comprised of covers of all the songs from Meet The Beatles and Introducing The Beatles, both of which were released in the United States sixty years ago this month.  You’ll hear a wide assortment of artists doing their versions of the songs that brought Beatlemania to America.

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 serves up a mixtape of shows that recently closed, or announced their closings on and off-Broadway.

You will hear songs from How To Dance In Ohio, Shucked, Some Like It Hot, Harmony, Guttenberg, and a few other recently shuttered productions. Opening the show is an audience recording provided by The Shed for their limited engagement of Stephen Sondheim’s final work, Here We Are.

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 classic episode that I haven’t chosen yet, as I write this.
