We have gotten ourselves back into a groove for the new year at The AIR , and Wednesdays always bring lots of great stuff to our humble little internet radio station. We continue our march into 2018 with brand-new episodes of our top programs. Today you’ll get fresh servings of Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle, Beatles Blast, Curtain Call and The AIR Audio Playhouse.
Wednesday morning brings you a replay of this week’s edition of The Swing Shift followed by a couple of hours of great local music on Radio Free Charleston
At 11 AM it’s a special encore presentation of The AIR Audio Playhouse from last week, with once-thought-lost episodes of The Stan Freberg Show.
Noon sees 90 minutes of Mrs. PopCulteer, Mel Larch, first hosting a replay of Curtain Call, and then also hosting a classic episode of On The Road with Mel. On The Road with Mel will be returning in a few weeks with new episodes in a slightly-tweaked format.
At 1:30 PM it’s time for an all-new edition of Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle. This week we bring you part two of Michele’s intriguing interview with the paranormal investigators behind History and Haunts. This is a fascinating look into the world beyond the visible world with thought-provoking anecdotes and adventures. You can hear a replay of Life Speaks at 7 PM. Sunday night at 7 PM we will present both parts of this interview, back-to-back, as part of the Sunday night Talk Block.
At 2 PM music takes over witha brand-new Beatles Blast, hosted by yours truly. This week it’s an audio collage of some of rare Beatles music that usually doesn’t make it to the airwaves. The show opens with “You Know My Name,” and after my introduction, it’s all music for the remainder of the program. Even the most die-hard Beatles fan will find something new and different.
At 3 PM a brand-new Curtain Call presents a mix of the best examples of musical theater from the past, present and future, as Mel Larch throws in tunes from Grand Hotel, Marry Me A Little, South Pacific, Mamma Mia, and A Chorus Line, and previews songs from upcoming musical productions, Quadrophenia, Beaches and Frank Zappa’s Joe’s Garage.
The AIR Audio Playhouse brings you an hour of Mystery at 5 PM, with a show that’s split between Alfred Hitchock’s Scary Tales For Young People and Mystery In The AIR. At 6 PM, our double-shot of The New Music Show and The (BS) Crazy Show follows that.
Following a replay of today’s new episode of Life Speaks at 7 PM, we have a classic episode of Word Association with Lee & Rudy at 7:30 PM.
8 PM sees a replay of this week’s episode of Prognosis, as Herman Linte brings you the music of Premiani Forneria Marconi. At 10 PM we present two hours of our beloved Bat (poop) Crazy Show.
At midnight, we don’t know for sure what will be on The AIR, but we’re leaning toward a line up of all-night comedy.
