The PopCulteer
April 23, 2021

Your PopCulteer is still slacking a bit this week, but I may have a bonus post up later today. Meanwhile, Friday afternoon we offer up new episodes of MIRRORBALL and 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, Mel Larch uncorks a new MIRRORBALL! The AIR’s showcase of classic Disco music presents a collection of the Disco hits of on Howard Wayne Casey,  who may be just a little bit better known as “KC” when in the midst of The Sunshine Band.  Mel brings you a solid hour of Florida’s Disco Kings. Just check the playlist for this bodacious bit of boogeymania…

At 3 PM, Sydney Fileen graces us with a one-week-delayed new episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. Last week technical glitches on my end held up this show, and it’s a good one, so we made sure it was perfect this time.  This week Sydney salutes the proud women who infiltrated New Wave music and made sure that it didn’t turn into yet another old boy’s club. Every sng in this week’s show is spearheaded by feminine creativity. Check out the playlist…
