The PopCulteer
January 14, 2022

Your humble blogger is currently in deadline heck with a looming magazine article that’s giving me fits, so all I got for you today is notes on a new episode of MIRRORBALL on The AIR.

Luckily for you, it’s a great new hour of Disco classics courtesy of my lovely wife, Mel Larch, debuting on the afternoon after the 33rd anniversary of the night we met. So please enjoy this bright, shiny new episode of MIRRORBALL which will be followed by a very cool recent edition of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat.  The AIR is PopCult‘s sister radio station. You can hear these shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player at the top right column of this blog.

At 2 PM, Mel Larch uncorks a new MIRRORBALL! The AIR’s showcase of classic Disco music presents a wild collection of classic The show always debuts on a Friday, so we kick things off with the title song from the Deeeeesco movie,  Thank God It’s Friday, and then we boogie on from there.
