At 2 PM on Beatles Blast, yours truly hosts the third of a ten-part look at rare and unreleased music by The Beatles. For most of the summer, Beatles Blast will follow this format and bring you The Lost Beatles Project. This will be a treat for the die-hard fans as we mine the best of the recently-released archive projects by the band, and mix in rare releases and wild remixes from their band and solo years. We won’t be posting playlists for these shows because the whole point is that each of these programs will be a revelatory surprise.
Beatles Blast can be heard every Wednesday at 2 PM, with replays Thursday at 9 PM, Friday at 11 AM, Sunday at 5 PM and Tuesdays at 9 AM, exclusively on The AIR.
At 3 PM Mel Larch presents a new hour of great musical theater on Curtain Call. This week Mel brings you highlights of this year’s winner of the Tony Award for best musical, Hadestown. Hadestown is a musical retrellling of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice in a more modern setting than it’s usual mythical Greek location. For the full hour you will here many tracks from the yet-to-be-released Broadway cast album, along with four songs from a live recording of the Off-Broadway run of the play from 2016.
After the new hour of Curtain Call, stick around for two additional episodes from the Curtain Call archives. Curtain Call can be heard Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 8 AM and Saturday at 6 PM. An all-night marathon of Curtain Call episodes can be heard Wednesday nights, beginning at Midnight, and an additional marathon can be heard Sunday evenings from 6 PM to midnight..
