I don’t usually feature the work of other artists as Monday Morning Art here in PopCult, but this week I’m making an exception. Last week we lost Charly Hamilton, a legend in the Charleston art scene, and a friend of over three decades. Saturday I ran an old episode of Radio Free Charleston in this blog that featured host segments shot in front of Charly’s giant West Side mural.
I pulled the feature image for that post from the raw footage for the host segments, and while digging through the folder for that I found a five second camera test clip that I shot pointed inside Mel’s car. When I looked at the clip, I saw Charly’s mural reflected in the side-view mirror, and it just struck me as appropriate for this week’s Monday Morning Art.
I call this image “Reflecting On Charly,” because I figure he’d get a laugh out of it.
If you want to see the big image a bit bigger, just click on it.
Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you an encore episode of Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by another encore edition of Herman Linte’s weekly showcase of the Progressive Rock of the past nmalf-century, Prognosis. 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.
The Haversham folks are buried under paying work this week, and will return next week with new shows.
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.
At 8 PM, stick around for an 11-hour marathon of Mel Larch’s Disco showcase, MIRRORBALL.
