4-19-logoIt’s yet another thrilling Wednesday filled with new programming on The AIR as we offer up a special hour-long episode of  Life Speaks with Michele Zirkle Marcum and new editions of Curtain Call and Beatles Blast.  You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just flip the switch right here on this embedded radio player…

The morning kicks off with a replay of this week’s The Swing Shift at 7 AM, followed by a two-hour version of The NEW MUSIC SHOW, featuring Save Ferris, Brian May, Claypool Lennon Delirum, Speedsuit, HARRAH, Everlast and more at 9 AM and a replay of last week’s Curtain Call at noon. All times, EDT, by the way.

At 1 PM  Michele Zirkle Marcum brings us a special one-hour compilation of her lengthy interview with local Bigfoot scholar, Russ Jones on Life Speaks. We’d brought you parts of this interview in the two prior weeks, but there was so much left and it’s such a facinating interview that we decided to combine them into a one-hour special.

The Best of The Real with Mark Wolfe re-presents Mark’s talk with your PopCulteer, Rudy Panucci, at 2 PM.

It’s a new Curtain Call at 3 PM, as Mel Larch brings you a collection of some of the greatest overtures in Broadway history. This show has everything from Gypsy, to Oklahoma to Starlight Express.  You’ll find the playlist later in this post.

At 5 PM Beatles Blast is back with a brand-new episode, hosted by your humble PopCulteer. We have plenty of tracks from the Fab Four, together and solo, plus plenty of interesting covers. The full playlist can be found below.

6 PM sees The NEW MUSIC SHOW, followed at 6:30 PM by The now-daily Crazy Show.

At 7 PM we have a replay of the Life Speaks Bigfoot Special with Michele Zirkle Marcum.

We maintain our prime-time Wednesday line-up of this week’s Prognosis at 8 PM, followed by The Comedy Vault at 10 PM. Then at midnight we dive into the Radio Free Charleston archives for seven hours of classic episodes from the last year. Nobody brings you as much local music as The AIR.

The interruption-free programming continues as The AIR continues being an actual radio station, despite what some people think.
