At 2 PM on Beatles Blast, yours truly hosts the fourth 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 performances by folks like Lin Manuel Miranda, Laura Benanti, Angela Lansbury, and even Huntington’s own Tony-winner, Michael Cervaris. You’ll hear songs from classic shows like My Fair Lady and A Little Night Music, tunes from modern classics like Fun Home and In The Heights and brand-new off-Broadway shows like Renascence. It truly is an hour of the best of musical theatre.
