It may seem a bit like I’ve been ignoring The AIR, PopCult‘s sister internet radio station, while I’ve been compiling The 2020 PopCult Gift Guide. If it seems that way, it’s probably because I have. Sorry about that.

The plan is to wrap up the gift guide Wednesday, then run the master list Friday, and then, after all that falls into place, The AIR will return with all-new episodes of our music specialty programs next week.

In the meantime, in this week of giving thanks (during a somewhat thankless year), Tuesday you can hear a marathon of Radio Free Charleston, starting at 7 AM and running for 24 hours. This is our flagship show that combines local music with that of international artists.

Wednesday at 7 AM, we turn the reins over to Mel Larch for 24 hours of Curtain Call, presenting the best of musical theatre.

Thursday we begin PROGSGIVING, a five day marathon of Herman Linte’s Prognosis, which will be interrupted Thursday and Sunday at Midnight for our weekly seven-hour overnight runs of The Swing Shift. We get hate mail from Europe if we pre-empt The Swing Shift.

If everything works out, Monday at 3 PM, in the middle of the final day of PROGSGIVING, we will debut a new episode of Prognosis.

You can tune in and hear it all on The AIR, at the website, or on the embedded player that you can find over in the right-hand column of this blog.
