The PopCulteer
April 10, 2020

We find ourselves once again with a PopCulteer that doesn’t have a single theme. We have a couple of short items, but not a lot of time to write them out, so let’s get started, shall we?

Friday On The AIR

Due to a technical glitch by your PopCulteer, we failed to retrieve this week’s episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat that Sydney Fileen had so lovingly crafted for us from the Haversham Recording Institute server. In its stead we will bring you an encore of Sydney’s show from a few weeks ago Friday at 3 PM, and we’ll bring you her newest show next Friday.

You can listen in at The AIR website, or on this cool little embeded player…

Because we didn’t want you to go without some fresh programming on The AIR, today at 2 PM you can tune in and listen to the second episode of Rudy & Mel’s Shut-in Show.

Recorded late last night, this rambling program starts out as a bit of an extension of my review of Paul Rees’ new book about John Entwistle, but then veers off into tangents that cover topics like Ken Russel’s version of Tommy, the use of inflatable T Rex costumes and copious amounts of blood in Shakespeare plays, streaming and podcast options for theatre, upcoming TV shows, The Bonzo Dog Band and more.

We’ll replay the whole mess at 10 PM, followed by a replay of last week’s debut episode. I’m still not sure when, or if, we’ll do more of these, but I’ll try to warn you all in advance.

Also at The AIR, by this afternoon, all of this week’s new programs will be available as podcasts if you click on the tab on the left of the screen.

Don’t Cross The Livestreams

One of the silver linings to come out of this Coronavirus mess is that many musicians have begun live-streaming intimate performances. I had planned to list them here because so many great local and international artists are doing this that I figured it would be a great way to help you pass the time.

But then, everybody started doing it. I began getting so many notifications of events so fast that it became overwhelming. I didn’t want to just mention one artist and perhaps miss another.

I just can’t keep up with them all, as cool as they all are.

So…I’m turning it over to you. If you have a livestream concert coming up, please feel free to share a link to it in the comments on this post. Say when and where and who you are and include a link so that PopCult readers can jump right over at the appointed time, and maybe even kick in on your virtual tipjar, if you have one.

And with that, this PopCulteer is over. I got stuff to do, and you will want to check to see if anybody left a link to a cool stream in the comments. Be sure to check back every day for fresh content here at PopCult.
