Your PopCulteer has just returned from another whirlwind trip to New York City, and I will be telling you about those action-packed 42 hours in the next few days. In the month of September, the Big Apple will be the subject of Monday Morning Art, with each week presenting a piece of art inspired by New York City, but executed in drastically different styles. This week it’s my impressionistic take on Manhattan’s Theatre District, which we could see just by looking out of our hotel window. As always, click to enlarge the image.

Our Monday Marathon on The AIR, this week celebrates the 29th anniversary of Radio Free Charleston, which debuted on broadcast radio 29 years ago on the weekend of Labor Day, 1999.  RFC has gone through many different incarnations, including the original broadcast run, our video show (currently on hiatus) and our current internet radio program which you can listen to at The AIR Website, or on the embedded player at the bottom of this post. Starting at 7 AM Monday, and running for 24 hours, you can listen to one-hour episodes of Radio Free Charleston filled with great local music alternating with two-hour episodes of Radio Free Charleston International, filled with great music of all kinds from all over the world.  Between the two shows, you can recreate the feel of the original RFC, which combined alternative and progressive music with the best of local music from all over West Virginia.
