This week we have a quick and sloppy pastel-on-watercolor paper study for a potential high-detail large-scale canvas painting later. For now, I wanted to get the basic composition down. If I decide to blow this rough up into a bigger and more detailed work, it will look dramatically different from this rough color sketch.

I can see this being another homage to Chicago, once more details are added. It’s been twenty-six months since Mel and I have ventured to the site of our matrimony, and we really miss the place. Maybe soon we can hop on the Amtrak and go back to the promised land.

But basically, I just wanted to play with the Batman TV show camera angle here.

If you want to see this one a tiny bit bigger, just click on it.

Meanwhile, Monday at 2 PM on The AIR, we bring you a new episode of  Psychedelic Shack, followed at 3 PM by a 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 at the top of the right-hand column of this blog.

Nigel Pye has assembled a particular swell edition of Psychedelic Shack, which I cannot describe to you because I’m writing this before I receive it through the internets. Sometimes Easter with your love must come first. He promises me it’s going to be a good one.

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.

Following that hour of mysterious Psychedelic joy, at 3 PM Herman Linte’s Prognosis will bring us two-hours of Tangerine Dream, performing live with special guest, Brian May (of Queen fame) at Magma Arte & Congresos Concert Hall on the island of Tenerife on the occasion of the Starmus Festival 2011. This is two full hours of epic sound textures and Herman secured permission to run it, only if he did so without interruption, so aside from his intro and the station ID at the top of the second hour, this one is pure music.

However, he has also been asked not to share the playlist, which to be honest, just means less work for me anyway.

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, we bring you an episode of The Comedy Vault filled with an hour of raunchy comedy from Redd Foxx.  Wednesday evening at 10 PM, we’ll have another new episodeof our comedy showcase, but I haven’t produced it yet, so I can’t tell you what’s in it.

Then, at 9 PM we bring you an overnight marathon of ska with NOISE BRIGADE and Ska Madness. We will probably be bidding farewell to NOISE BRIGADE soon, but you’ll still be able to hear Steven Allen Adams do his show for WTSQ on Saturday afternoons. Dexter Checkers is threatening to return with new editions of Ska Madness on a regular basis soon, so we’ll just have to see what happens.
