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 Takes us into March with the show that begins like a lamb, but goes out like a lion. Mel begins with a great tune from the Van Gogh-inspired musical, Starry, and the first half of the show features ballads, lovely, gentle melodies and bluesy meditations.

The second half of Curtain Call this week shakes everything up with songs that swing, go Disco and echo prog-rock. The subject matter this week ranges from artisitc endeavors to presidential assassinations to King Tut, archangels, lunch and more. Check out this playlist:
