Okay, the top-secret mission I’ve been talking about the last few days was a quick trip to Chicago. Mrs. PopCulteer is a huge fan of award-winning playwright, Tracy Letts, and Steppenwolf Theater (the place where we got married) is mounting a production of one of his early works, Bug, which I will tell you about in a day or two. While we were in town, we also took in an amazing production of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, mounted by Haven Chicago at the Den Theater, and I’ll also tell you about that, and coincidentally the local production of Titus, which Mrs. PopCulteer is performing in this coming weekend.

With that revelation out of the way, our art for all of the month of March will be inspired by this most recent trip to The Windy City. While we were only in Chicago for about 52 hours, we did visit a couple of places we hadn’t been to yet, and some of our art will spring from our visit to Chicago’s Navy Pier, like this week’s art, which is a digital painting of the Chicago Skyline as seen from the pier, with the Centennial Wheel leaning in for a painting bomb.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 11 PM, and brings you an all-day overdose of The Lost Beatles Project on Beatles Blast. You can tune in all day long to hear outtakes, rehearsals, studio chatter, and alternate mixes of classic tunes by The Fab Four themselves. We decided to give you an over-sized marathon today, because most of our shows are going to be in reruns this week, so we wanted to treat you to a bonus.

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