Early Tuesday morning, The AIR was hacked, and listeners who tuned it heard nothing but dead air. It was actually a DDoS attack on all of the AirTime stations hosted by Sourcefabric, and although it’s fun to think we were important enough to be targeted by a foreign power, chances are we were just collateral damage in a prank by amateur hackers.
However, things were swiftly rectified, and we were back in operational form by 10:30 AM. If you want to see what those damned dirty Russians wanted to prevent you from hearing, tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
Wednesday afternoon, we offer up new episodes of Beatles Blast and Curtain Call, so check them out, and maybe you’ll be able to figure out the real reason that Russia’s Prime Minister and Cabinet resigned today.
At 2 PM Beatles Blast brings you another hour of The Lost Beatles Project, which combines rare cuts, studio outtakes and musical rarities into a nearly-60 minute mixtape of little-heard Beatles gems.
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. It’s a random mix of old and new this week, so check out the playlist…
