At 11 AM, it’s The Lynn Browder Show about Autism. In 2015 Lynn Browder began producing a show for Voices of Appalachia chronicling her son’s diagnosis with autism and the adjustments that she’s made in her life. In a few weeks Lynn will resume production of her program, bringing us up to date with Owen’s progress and sharing their personal journey. Today we bring you the fifth and sixth episodes of Lynn’s Autisum Discussion show. Lynn’s show will replay on Friday morning and Sunday afternoon.
Our programs today also include an encore edition of On The Road With Mel at 1 PM. This week, it’s a two-topic show. In the first half, Mel Larch tells you all about how to pack for a trip. The second half is a handy guide to the best ways to get out of Charleston. The plan for this week was to bring you an all-new show, but Tuesday evening’s storms delayed recording that show until next week. Either way, with thirty minutes packed full of great basic travel information, On The Road With Mel is a can’t miss proposition.
At 1:30 PM, it’s time for this week’s all new STUFF TO DO. Your hosts Rudy Panucci and Mel Larch tell you all about the weekend’s activities including Live on The Levee, The Charleston Light Opera Guild Production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at The Clay center, great bands playing in our area’s top music venues and more. This week, you’ll also hear music from Hurl Brickbat, The Irreplaceables, Time And Distance and Under Surveillance. STUFF TO DO repeats at 6:30 PM and will be posted in PopCult Thursday.
At 2 PM, The Best of The Real With Mark Wolfe brings you an hour of terrific conversation with cult radio personality Jerry Galvin. A second new edition of The Best of The Real With Mark Wolfe airs at 9 PM and features Mark’s interview with Matt Ballard of The Charleston Area Alliance.
At 3 PM, there’s a brand new episode of Curtain Call, hosted once again by Mel Larch. This week, Mel brings you showtunes from Billy Elliott, My Fair Lady, Spamalot, Avenue Q and more.
4 PM sees a brand-new episode of The Swing Shift, exploring the best Swing Music from the last century, with Joe Jackson, Louis Prima, Benny Goodman, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Oingo Boingo, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Glen Gray Orchestra and more. It’s your PopCulteer’s not-so-guilty pleasure. I have a blast doing this show.
Fans of British comedy will want to tune in at 6 PM for a classic edition of The Goon Show. At 8 PM tune in for The Booster Pack‘s discussion of Harry Potter.
10 PM heralds a new episode of The Gibby Hunters. If you don’t know what a Gibby is, or why anyone would hunt one, tune in each week as Brian Bargainier and his crew discuss Gibbys and why they need to be spotted in the wild. This is a great educational and informative program that just happens to sound like a bunch of off-duty comedians talking candidly about all the awful people they encounter on the road.
Winding up at 11 PM for a new episode of The Comedy Vault with classic comedy routines from Brian Posehn, Clive and Derek, Steve Martin, Louis CK and more.
Between these shows, stay tuned for terrific indy music and encores of our other regular programs.
