At 11 AM and 7 PM, check out the replay of the RFC Interview with David Synn, just in case you weren’t paying attention when we told you about its debut yesterday.
At 3 PM, DJ Betty Rock regales us with another two hour blast of the coolest music on the planet, as Radio Coolsville comes to The AIR via WMUL in Huntington.
Jumping to 8 PM, it’s Six Degrees of Separation, hosted by Tim Dorsey and Jason “Roadblock” Robinson from the Empty Glass. This week, they spend more than an hour talking to local guitar legend, Johnny Compton (seen right). This is followed by a collection of tunes hand picked by Johnny himself.
At 11 PM, Radio Free Charleston International is all over the map, bringing you new music from classic artists, newer music from unknown artists, unknown music from world famous artists, and an assortment of relevatory sonic bombshells.
This week, RFC International brings you all that and even includes a special set of music made by various offspring of The Beatles. Radio Free Charleston International will be replayed Friday night at 10 PM, Saturday morning at 11 AM and Sunday night at 10 PM
Monday is busting out all over on The AIR. This evening, our plucky little internet radio station will intrigue and beguile you with interviews with local artistic heroes David Synn, RJ Haddy and Chase Henderson. We’ll also have Lee Harrah’s musical explanation of how he came to be the person he is. You can listen at The AIR website or on this technologically confounding embedded little radio player…
The excitement begins at 3PM with a brand new episode of Prognosis. Your presenter, Herman Linte, will blow your mind with two hours of complex and phenomenal progressive rock.
The interviewing excitement begins at 7PM with our lineup of great Monday night talk shows. At 7 PM, you can hear That Conversation with Patrick Felton, as Patrick talks to Chase Henderson, the man behind Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School and Gorillafoot Productions.
At 8 PM, it’s a special debut time for the second RFC Interview. This time, Radio Free Charleston‘s Rudy Panucci sits down to talk with David Synn in a career spanning interview. David has just returned to the musical scene after a hiatus during which he sold most of his instruments and began writing poetry. In this one hour special,
David talks about his entire career as a rock and roll keyboardist, beginning with his earliest band, covering his solo work, his time with Godmode Broadway and Stytch N Tyme, his poetry, and his upcoming project Membrane Cell, with Kenneth Booth.
You’ll hear samples of David’s music and poetry as he talks about his collaborations with people like Johnny Compton, Sharon Lyn Stackpole, Lee Harrah, and JC Bravo. The RFC Interview with David Synn will be repeated Tuesday at 11 AM and 7 PM and Thursday at 10 AM, with more replays throughout the following week. (Thanks to Rafeal Barker for the photo of David in his Pope Poet gear)
At 9 PM, The Best of The Real With Mark Wolfe presents Mark’s in-depth interview with RJ Haddy, F/X makeup artist extraordinaire and a multi-time contestant on the SyFy Network’s competition show, Face Off.
At 10 PM, on Harrah’s Hard and Heavy, Lee Harrah presents Part Two of his collections of songs “that made me me.” This week, Lee gets heavy with metal classics from Slayer, Motorhead, and Black Sabbath. As a special treat, at 11 PM The AIR will replay Part One of Lee’s epic soul baring self expose.
It’s been over ten years now that I’ve been regularly posting Monday Morning Art here in PopCult. Except for a couple of guest artists and some late postings on Tuesday, there has been fresh digital art every Monday in PopCult since at least August, 2006.
To commemorate this I am returning to one of the first pieces I did for PopCult, one for which I have created countless hundreds of completely unneccesary variations over the last decade or more. Here is one more. This is “Scape 2016.” Click to enlarge, if you are so inclined.
It’s Lee Harrah, backed by HARRAH, in his pre-Ghostbuster days, dressed as another person who stumbles over and encounters apparitions that aren’t really there, Ozzy Osbourne. Enjoy!
Also, be on the lookout for HARRAH’s new CD, available from Amazon, Budget Tapes & Records and other fine retail establishments. It’s particularly swell!
We march through the run of Radio Free Charleston with our first two-part episode, now combined into one video clip, the first Radio Free Charleston Halloween Special. In our first year we decided to do two episodes for Halloween, back-to-back on consecutive weeks (the first time we achieved that, by the way). At the end of the first show, your host (that’s me) gets killed. Part two is hosted by my ghost.
Music includes The Concept, half of The Pistol Whippers, Whistlepunk, Clownhole and Professor Mike.These shows also include Pentagram Flowerbox, animation by yours truly and Brian Young, short films by Frank Panucci and the first on-screen appearance of my now-wife, Mel Larch. This began the tradition of RFC taking on overly-ambitious ideas for our Halloween Shows, and with any luck, we may cook up some sort of harebrained scheme for this year.
This is a weird time for me to be writing about Pop Culture.
Part of it is my personal medical situation. I’m undergoing treatment for Myasthenia Gravis, which I’ve already written about here, and it’s sort of commanding a lot of my attention. I’m doing well with it, but there are some drawbacks to the medicine I’m taking and the recovery process.
Prednisone is a bit of a wonder drug, but it comes with a price. While it’s working to rebuild the muscles that have atrophied over the eleven or more years that my disease went undiagnosed (my own fault, by the way, you can’t be diagnosed if you don’t go to the doctor), the side effects have been a bit disruptive. I’m very easily irritated and controlling my appetite has become much more of a struggle than it had been. My attention span is not what it normally is.
But aside from that, this is just a strange point in history for Pop Culture.
