wednesday-5-31-logoA striking new episode of Life Speaks To Michele Zirkle a milestone episode of  Curtain Call and a new show about Professional Wrestling headline your day of programming on The AIR. You can tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

It’s “Butterflies with Messages and Freedom from Within” this week on a brand-new episode of Life Speaks To Michele Zirkle   Wednesday at 1:30 PM on The AIR. Don’t forget you can learn more about Michele’s views on life and how the spiritual and physical worlds coexist at her website, where you can also find out about her book, Rain No Evil.

Then at 2 PM The Best of The Real with Mark Wolfe sees Mark at Create WV.

At 3 PM Yours Truly invades Mrs, PopCulteer, Mel Larch’s show, Curtain Call to mark her twenty-fifth episode. We do it with SWING. That’s right, Broadway Swings this week on Curtain Call. You’ll hear Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstong, Atie Shaw, Frank Sinatra, The Royal Crown Revue and others jazz up some famous showtunes, and we also bring you numbers that already swing from Hamilton, Aladdin, Young Frankenstein and more. This turned out to be such an epic crossover event that we had to stretch it into a second part, which you can hear next Tuesday on The Swing Shift. Go read the playlist at the bottom of this post.

At 5 PM, we encore two of the half-hour episodes of Beatles Blast because your PopCulteer is in deadline purgatory this week. 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 Life Speaks, followed at 7:30 PM by Word Association with Lee & Rudy.

We shake up our prime-time Wednesday line-up this week, but we still keep Prognosis at 8 PM.

Then at 10 PM it’s the debut of Marking Out, a new hour-long show devoted to Professional Wrestling, which comes to us from WMUL radio in Huntington. Hosted by Matt BelVillain and Betty Rock, this weekly show will fill you in on everything you need to know about WWE, NXT, ROH, Impact Wrestling and even the local indy scene. We will be scheduling replays of this show later in the week, but we’re thrilled to have this new addition to The AIR.

That’s followed by The Comedy Vault at 11 PM. Then at midnight listeners can settle in for an all-night marathon of weird random stuff I had laying around the program list.  All part of the unique programming on The AIR.
