We take you back to February, 2011 for Radio Free Charleston episode 119, “Transformer Shirt.” This episode featured the RFC debut of Sasha Colette, a song from “Norman Rockwell’s An American Love Story,” a special surprise song from Symphony Idol winner Ryan Hardiman and DEVO/Valentine’s animation by Frank Panucci.
This is a bittersweet show, with host segments shot at Hubbard Hospice House, just hours before Mel’s mother, Betty Larch, passed away. Making it even more bittersweet is the presence of Mark Scarpelli on two of the songs in this show. It’s a great time capsule of theatre and music from early 2011, but it’s tinged with a bit of sadness.
