The PopCulteer
November 1, 2019

Your PopCulteer is dodging power outages as he writes this week’s column, so it’s not going to be a long one.

Basically, we’re doing some special programming stunts on The AIR over the weekend, so that we can tear down the Halloween stuff and get ready for the new month. So Friday all day you can listen to Radio Free Charleston International. Saturday it’s Radio Free Charleston. And Sunday we’ll bring you Beatles Blast from 9 AM to 6 PM, before we launch into our regularly-scheduled marathons for Curtain Call and The Swing Shift.

Then on Monday we’ll have Psychedelic Shack until 3 PM, when we hope we have new episode of Prognosis for you.

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this handy-dandy embedded radio player…

Also on Monday we plan to begin The 2019 PopCult Gift Guide. This will be our fifteenth go-around with the gift guide, and as usual we’re going to try a whole new format. This year the plan is to run the Gift Guide from November 4 to Thanksgiving, with between four to six suggestions every day.

Some of our suggestions will be presented as detailed reviews (the plan is for one of those each day) and some will see three or four gift ideas combined into a single post. Since this is our fifteenth year, we’ll also be sprinkling in a few “Gift Guide Flashbacks” where we go back and revisit a gift idea from a previous year.

As always, our gift ideas will be pop culture oriented. You can expect this year’s gift guide to have a lot of books, comics and music.

And with that, and our flickery power, we’re going to call it a PopCulteer. Check back for our regular features and get ready for lots of great stuff next week.
