Welcome to PopCult’s guide to Bonus Round Week on The AIR. This week, Tuesday through Saturday, each programming day on The AIR will be split between two mini-marathons of some of our most popular specialty music programs.
You can listen at The AIR Website, or on this embedded radio player…
Wednesday sees Curtain Call, our showcase for the best of musical theatre, take the daytime spot, from 7 AM to 7 PM.
Curtain Call is hosted by Mel Larch (AKA Mrs. PopCulteer) and presents a wide range of the best show tunes in recorded history. From classics numbers from shows like 42nd Street, West Side Story and Hello Dolly to modern classics from Book of Mormon, Hamilton and SpongeBob Squarepants, Mel keeps her listeners entertained with a thoughtful mix of the best the stage has to offer.
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.
From 7 PM to Midnight, you can hear five episodes of Beatles Blast, presenting music by, about, and inspired by The Beatles. Hosted by yours truly, this hourly intraveneous dose of the Fab Four brings you the classic songs, solo material, rare collaborations, covers by other artists and on occasion, interviews and documentary presentations about The Beatles.
Beatles Blast can be heard Wednesday at 2 PM, Thursday at 11 AM and 9 PM, Friday at 5 PM, and Tuesday at 9 AM.
