Mel Larch

All this week on The AIR, we bring you marathons of our music specialty programs. This is  a great way to give new readers and listeners a chance to sample our shows, and also give our staff a week off from having to produce anything new.

The marathons will begin at 7 AM and run for 24 hours. If you miss anything, don’t worry. We’ve found ways to keep these shows in rotation.

Wednesday’s marathon features my wife, Mel Larch, and her program devoted to the world of Musical Theatre, Curtain Call.

At 3 PM each Wednesday we offer up two hours of Curtain Call. Mel Larch brings you an hour of the best of musical theater, followed by a replay of a previous episode. Mel has over 130 episodes in the can, so you can expect a top-flight slab of Musical Theatre, carefully curated by Mel and showing off her expertise. You might hear classics of the stage, brand-new experimental works, or songs from the top shows currently running on Broadway or The West End.

The batch of Curtain Call editions in this marathon include anniversary celebrations of major shows, loads of salutes to new musicals, spotlights on overlooked shows and career-retrospectives of some of the greats of the stage.

Mel’s other show, MIRRORBALL, her celebration of all things Classic Disco, was featured as a marathon last Saturday, but will return with a bonus ten-hour marathon next Monday.

Check PopCult every day this week to see what show we’ll feature as our daily marathon while your humble blogger crawls off to recover from The 2023 PopCult Gift Guide.
