Our art this week is a quick pinup doodle, drawn on tiny 2″ by 3″ paper using an actual Flair pen (yes, they still make those), scanned, blown up an then colored in the computer. I kept it small and quick because my fingers are still somewhat impaired by Myasthenia Gravis (it’s been a rough month or so). I based this on a classic stock pose that they used for “glamour” photos back in the 1930s. Just to mess with the timeline of my influences, I used a 1960s-inspired color technique (which also took way less time).

Meanwhile, Monday at 9 AM on The AIR, we bring you six episodes of Psychedelic Shack, Nigel Pye’s bi-weekly showcase of the best trippy music from the hippie era and beyond. There is a chance that, when our Haversham Recording Institute programs return with new episodes in April, Psychedelic Shack may be moving to Mondays. We’ll keep you posted. You can tune into a recent episode of Prognosis at 3 PM.
Due to the lockdown in the UK, the Haversham Recording Institute programs will be in rerun mode for the next few weeks. Luckily we have a pretty extensive library of high-quality repeats to share with you.
You can hear Prognosis on The AIR Monday at 3 PM, with replays Tuesday at 7 AM, Wednesday at 8 PM, Thursday at Noon, Saturday at 10 AM and Sunday at 2 PM.
You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on the embedded radio player at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.
