This week’s art is a small pencil sketch, created by yours truly while struggling through a nasty summer of Myasthenia Gravis, but armed with my trusty Blackwing Palamino pencil and some textured paper. It’s a drawing, done using photo reference of the Stegadon skeleton at the The Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex, which I told you about last week.
I’d planned to do this as a 20-minute timed drawing, but it was working out better than expected, so I kept going until my hands cramped up sometime after the one-hour mark. I cleaned up some smudges after scanning.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we re-present the first two episodes of Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by the first 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.
Last Friday was the sixth anniversary of The AIR, and Herman Linte and Nigel Pye both offered to do special episodes to commemorate that, but when I realized we’d be dropping those episodes on a holiday when hardly anybody reads PopCult or listens to The AIR, I told them to just give me normal shows for next week, and we’d revisit their origins this week. From 7 AM to 11 AM Monday we’ll bring the first episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, followed the latest episode, where Sydney Fileen revisits the artist line-up from her first show.
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 hilarious novelty tunes from the archives of Dr. Demento on The Comedy Vault. Wednesday evening at 10 PM, we’ll have another new episode of The Comedy Vault.
Then, at 9 PM we bring you an overnight marathon of the reamaing episodes of our series-within-a-series, as Beatles Blast brings you The Lost Beatles Project episodes of Beatles Blast.
