Wednesday afternoon The AIR brings you a brand-new episode of Curtain Call! You can tune in at the website, or or you could just stay on this page, and listen to the convenient embedded radio player lurking over in the right-hand column of this blog.
At 3 PM on Curtain Call, Mel Larch offers up an early Halloween present. It’s a special concert performance of songs from The Rocky Horror Show by Dallas-based choral symphonic pop band, Polyphonic Spree. This was recorded in London, back in 2012, (you can download it on Bandcamp), and we decided to slip it into the schedule a month early so that we could take the opportunity to plug the second weekend of Mountain Root Company’s production of The Rocky Horror Show, which you can catch Friday and Saturday at their theater in Belle.
Details are in the graphic below, and you can find more information at their website.
Since the Polyphonic Spree concert didn’t flll up the whole hour, the rest of this week’s Curtain Call treats you to a couple of perfomances from the recent PBS presentation of Wicked, in Concert. You will hear “The Wizard and I,” performed by Rita Morena and Arianna DeBose, and after that Mario Cantone, performs The Wizard’s song, “Wonderful.”
Curtain Call can be heard on The AIR Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 8 AM, Friday at 10 AM, Saturday afternoon 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.
