Today’s art is a small pastel painting over a printout of a digitally-altered photograph. It’s a quickie, because, as you may have noticed, PopCult is having a technical issue, and unfortunately, it’s with my graphics, which is a key part of this blog. I knocked this piece out in less than half an hour because I’m probably looking at two days of working intensely with IT people in another country to figure out how to regain the full use of the functionality in this blog.

If you want to see this painting/drawing larger, just lean into your computer. I don’t have the capability to make it bigger with just a click at the moment. You may have noticed that the header image, which usually runs over the headline, is missing in action. It’s very frustrating, and it apparently will take a lot of time to fix. {Update: Not so much time. I had it restored by noon and PopCult should be back to whatever passes for normal, completely, by Wednesday}

Because of the tedious process of figuring out what went wrong, Radio Free Charleston will be a repeat of a recent episode tomorrow. I hate to do this, but it is the first week I’ve missed (not counting the marathon) this year. I hope to have things back to normal by the middle of the week. As it is, I had to undertake Rube-Goldbergian measures just to get this post working.

Meanwhile,in the midst of all that mess, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a recent episode of Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a recent edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past half-century, Prognosis. You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player in the right column of the website version of PopCult.

Psychedelic Shack can be heard every Monday at 2 PM, with replays Tuesday at 9 AM, Wednesday at 10 PM, Friday at 1 PM, and Saturday at 9 AM. Classic episodes can be heard Sunday at 9 AM as part of our Sunday Haversham Recording Institute collection.

You can hear Prognosis on The AIR Monday at 3 PM, with replays Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM, Thursday at Noon, and Saturday at 10 AM. You can hear two classic episodes of the show Sunday at 2 PM.

Tonight at 8 PM you can hear an hour of stand-up from Jim Jeffries on The Comedy Vault. Wednesday evening at 10 PM, we’ll debut another new episode of The Comedy Vault.

Then, at 9 PM we bring you an overnight marathon of Prognosis, providing you with five YES-centric episodes of our Progressive Rock extravaganza, presented by Herman Linte, Rudy Panucci and The Haversham Recording Institute.
