This week see your PopCulteer returning to his trusty Blackwing Palamino pencil for a drawing based on a composite of five or six (I forget how many) photos taken while driving on Interstate roadways between Columbus and Atlanta over the years. I wanted to use reference for the different elements, but mix up the features so that it doesn’t look like any place specific.

It took about three weeks to complete this, working in spurts while my fingers were functional, and alternating with a painting you’ll see here next week.

This was another instance of me basically just trying to perfect some technique instead of expressing any grand ideas.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a recent episode of Psychedelic Shack, and then at 3 PM 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 elsewhere on this page.

On Psychedelic Shack, Nigel Pye offers up an hour-long mixtape of Psychedelic Music that, on this show,  kicks off with Smooth Motion.

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.

On a classic Prognosis, Herman Linte presents his usual assortment of prog-rock classics mixed with new tracks, and he opened this show with music from Jethro Tull’s “The Zealot Gene.”

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 Neil’s Heavy Concept Album, with a bonus of Ade Edmonson reading Dr. Suess on The Comedy Vault.

Then, at 9 PM we bring you an overnight marathon of MIRRORBALL, hosted by Mel Larch. We’ll kick this off with her latest episode, which premiered last Friday.

And check back around noon. That’s when we plan to post Day Sixteen of The 2022 PopCult Gift Guide! Today we’ll have five more book ideas.
