Wednesday afternoon on The AIR, Mel Larch brings you a new hour of Curtain Call, featuring the best of musical theater. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Curtain Call airs at 3 PM. Wednesday’s show opens with a demo of a song from the musical 1776, and in the rest of the hour Mel presents songs from newer shows like Unbreakable, Mula Sa Buwan and Head over Heels, and classic numbers from shows like Grease and Follies.

There are also a few numbers from the hidden gems of the world of musical theater, like the very first collaboration from Alen Menken and Howard Ashman, on a musical based on the works of Kurt Vonnegut, and a song from a musical by Langston Hughes. The second half of the show is devoted to a rain-themed set of songs that is particularly appropriate for this soggy Wednesday.

After the new hour of Curtain Call, stick around for two additional episodes from the Curtain Call archives. 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.

In the morning, following our regular 7 AM replay of the previous day’s episode of The Swing Shift, we will bring you up to date with Prognosis at 9 AM and Psychedelic Shack at 11 AM.  At noon tune in for Word Association iwth Lee & Rudy, followed by 90 minutes of The AIR Music Mix Beatles Blast comes on at 2 PM. All times listed inthis post are EST, by the way.
