We have reached the last day of March and 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 found elsewhere on this page.
At 2 PM, Mel Larch uncorks a new MIRRORBALL! Once again, we don’t have a fancy theme this week, just meaty, beaty, funky Disco music.
Check out the playlist…
Boney M “Daddy Cool”
The Isley Brothers “That Lady”
Donna Summer “I Love You”
Grace Jones “Love Is A Drug”
Eddie Kendricks “Keep On Truckin'”
The Village People “YMCA”

Love And Kisses “Thank God It’s Friday”
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 a special mixtape salute to The Fixx on Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. The Fixx is a group that Sydney considers to be one of the quintessential New Wave bands, despite the fact that they found much more success in North America than they did here in their home country, the UK.
Formed in London 1979, and led by Cy Curnin, the band is still making new music with their recently reunited original line-up. This week will Sydney mines on their first decade of making music together with two solid hours of music that includes their hits, deep album cuts, extended mixes and even a few b-sides.
Sadly, because of your PopCulteer’s somewhat crazed schedule this week, I don’t have the playlist to share with you, but you know it’s all going to be great for fans of The Fixx.
Sydney’s Big Electric Cat is produced at Haversham Recording Institute in London, and can be heard every Friday at 3 PM, with replays Saturday afternoon, Monday at 7 AM, Tuesday at 8 PM, Wednesday at Noon and Thursday at 10 AM, exclusively on The AIR.
That’s what’s new on The AIR Friday, and that is this week’s PopCulteer. Check back for our regular features every day.
