Our new morning line-up on Wednesday continues with The Swing Shift at 7 AM, followed by Prognosis at 9 AM, Psychedelic Shack at 11 AM and an encore of a classic Curtain Call at Noon. We are re-presenting classic episodes of On The Road with Mel at 1 PM. However, we’re going to mix that up a bit next week. Details are below.
At 1;30 PM, Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle presents Michele’s interview with cult cable-access TV personality, Mr. Phil. A few weeks ago we brought you Michele’s appearance on Mr. Phil’s show, and this week the tables turn as Michele interviews Mr. Phil and finds out what propelled him to his cult status and how he began his long-running New York-area show.
This also mark’s Michele’s last show for a while. With a new book coming out soon, her first book being adapted into a movie, and her recent move, Michele will be stepping away from the weekly grind and concentrating on her other endeavors, which you can keep up with at her website. Next week The AIR will begin airing remastered encores of her show, beginning with the first episode (which hasn’t been heard on The AIR for nearly two years), at her new timeslot, Wednesday at Noon. We will be shuffling the schedule around, so tune in and see the new line-up. Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle will return on a sporadic basis, as she has time to create new episodes.
Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle can be heard this Wednesday at 1:30 PM and 7 PM, with replays on The AIR Friday at 9:30 AM and Sunday at 7 PM.
At 2 PM Beatles Blast presents one-hour audio blast of music by and about the lads from Liverpool. Beatles Blast can be heard Wednesday at 2 PM, Thursday at 11 AM and 9 PM, Friday at 5 PM, and Tuesday at 9 AM.
At 3 PM Wednesday on Curtain Call, we bring you a very special brand-new episode celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Broadway musical, Eubie! This was the show that put Gregory and Maurice Hines on the map, and reintroduced the world to one of the most prolific songwriters of all time. Mel Larch introduces the original cast recordings, and we also hear performances by Eubie Blake himself, recorded in 1981, when he was 98 years old.
Curtain Call can be heard Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 7 AM and 8 PM and Saturday at 6 PM. An all-night marathon of Curtain Call episodes can be heard Wednesday nights, beginning at Midnight.
At 7:30 PM, we have gone into the AIR Archives and unearthed the missing seven episodes of Word Association with Lee and Rudy. These shows were misplaced on a stray hard drive and have not been heard in more than two years. We’ll bring them to you over the next seven weeks, and hopefully follow these with some new shows.
This week you can hear Lee Harrah and Rudy Panucci fumble about wildly as they try to discuss the old days of Charleston Radio, even though their age difference means that they are talking about two different eras.
Stay tuned all day, every day, for incredible music, thought-provoking talk and gut-busting comedy exclusively on The AIR. And check out the full schedule below, including our full day of fine programming…
