This week we kick off things with a piece of physical art. Using a composite of six or seven photos from a trip to The Big Apple last spring as my guide, I did an ink drawing of a New York street scene, and using real watercolors for the first time since I was in high school, I created this piece. It’s another step in regaining the use of my hands, and it’s a bit of a new direction. Had I created this piece digitally, I probably would have gone for a hyper-detailed look. Instead, this is more of a surreal combination of detailed cartooning and slightly impressionistic shadows and colors.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 7 AM Tuesday, and brings you all of 2019’s episodes of Herman Linte’s Prognosis.   At 3 PM, instead of one of last year’s shows, Herman will bring you the first Prognosis of 2020, which is a two-hour collection of music by the neo-Prog group, Pallas.  The plan is to have new episodes of most of our specialty music shows this week, including the debut of the three-hour version of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
