At 2 PM on Beatles Blast, yours truly hosts the first of a ten-part look at rare and unreleased music by The Beatles. For most of the summer, Beatles Blast will follow this format and bring you The Lost Beatles Project. This will be a treat for the die-hard fans as we mine the best of the recently-released archive projects by the band, and mix in rare releases and wild remixes from their band and solo years. We won’t be posting playlists for these shows because the whole point is that each of these programs will be a revelatory surprise.
Beatles Blast can be heard every Wednesday at 2 PM, with replays Thursday at 9 PM, Friday at 11 AM, Sunday at 5 PM and Tuesdays at 9 AM, exclusively on The AIR.
At 3 PM Mel Larch presents a new hour of great musical theater on Curtain Call. This week Mel goes for the offbeat and slightly weird as she presents some strange songs from strange musicals you may never have heard of before, plus some ancient classics and even a song from Kinky Boots, song in Swedish.
