We open this week with a quick and sloppy pastel drawing of a New York City street scene, based on about half-a-dozen photos I took on a muggy day last August. This is a piece of real art, and I have the hand cramps to prove it. At the time I was struck by the juxtaposition of the very dark, grey buildings with the bright violet video screens carrying financial news, and the way the light from the screens bounced off of everything.

Monday on The AIRThe Monday Marathon remains shrunken from 24 hours to 8. It still kicks off at 7 AM, every Monday, and it still showcases one of our popular music programs, but now it wraps up at 3 PM, to make way for two weekly marathon presentations of the best of two of our regular shows. This week it’s a marathon of Mr. Lee Harrah and Harrah’s Hard & Heavy, bringing you the hardest rock you’ll hear on The AIR.  At 3 PM you can settle in for eight hours of great New Wave music with Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. Then at 11 PM you can spend you overnights with eight hours of the best Progressive Rock of the last half-century on Prognosis
