Michele Zirkle Marcum takes us to Ireland on The AIR today with a brand-new episode of Life Speaks that you can listen to at 1:30 PM and 7 PM, on The AIR website, or on this embedded radio player…
Michele’s trip to Ireland stirs memories of the mountain state and if her husband’s deja vu is an indication, she may have lived there with him in another lifetime. Plus, forget rainbows and leprechauns–manifest your own pot of gold. Find out on Life Speaks.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Wednesday line-up on The AIR is the best of our shows as plucked from our library of excellence. That’s a fancy way of saying that we’re still in reruns because your PopCulteer is hard at work on the ToyLanta (JoeLanta) video wrap-up.

Your PopCulteer needs time to recuperate from his wonderful trip to JoeLanta and The Great Atlanta Toy Convention, so this week we’re bringing you encore presentations of many our internet radio programs.
At 10 AM you can tune in for three hours of recent episodes of Radio Free Charleston (episodes 34, 35 and 36), loaded with music from The Wren Allen Band, Bon Air, Speedsuit, Todd Burge, Holly and The Guy, The MFB, Under Surveillance, Fabulous Head, Deni Bonet and more. Episode 34 will play again at 10 PM.
At 2 PM we’ll revisit the final two-hour episode of Radio Coolsville. Next week DJ Betty Rock will return in a sleek, new one-hour format with all-new episodes.
At 3 PM we’ll have two recent episodes of The Swing Shift, loaded with the best swing music from the last century. That’s followed at 5 PM by a replay of last week’s encore episode of Radio Free Charleston International, which brought back the first of our two Swing specials, which acted as the pilot for The Swing Shift. You can hear that again at 11 PM, in case they don’t allow you to jitterbug at work.
At 7 PM you can listen to an hour of “The BS Crazy Show,” followed at 8 PM by Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. You can also bask in the New Wave goodness of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat all night long, starting at 1 AM.
Monday night, beginning at 5 PM, The AIR presents a fourteen-hour marathon of all of the original episodes of the BBC adaptation of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This will give listerns a chance to hear the entire series in one sitting.
You can listen at The AIR website, or on this rather amazing virtual radio player…
Normally The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy can be heard Thursday at 6 PM on The AIR, with replays throughout the following week. We’re actually bending time by bringing you all of the series at once, before the final two hours have run on The AIR. Consider it a special bonus, or perhaps a geometric anomoly.
Fans of late-1970s really cool British dramatizations can tune in two hours earlier, as Prognosis presents Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds at 3 PM.
This week’s art is a digital painting based on a toy that I was taking down to JoeLanta to the lobby swap because I have two of them. The toy is the Action Man Surf Mission, which includes an action figure on a wind surfboard, and a dolphin. I thought the photo looked cool, so I ran it through a bunch of filters, then painted over it in the computer.
It looks like March is turning into “Toy Month” here in Monday Morning Art. Click the image to see a larger version.
So your PopCulteer is still in Atlanta, enjoying the last day of JoeLanta and The Great Atlanta Toy Convention, but since I promised you folks at least one post every day, and since I don’t know if I’ll have time while I’m down there to pull myself away from the fun long enough to blog, this post is being written more than a week in advance.
We are going to salute Studio Joe, which is Tim and Lisa Weedn, who not only curate the JoeLanta Film Festival, but they also create their own hilarious stop-motion-animated shorts. Tonight we’re going to bring you a few of them, so you can see what all the fuss is about.
Above you see “Joe at Fifty,” which Tim and Lisa created in 2014 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of GI Joe’s creation. Below you’ll find “The Lost Intruder,” from 2013 and last year’s epic, “Off Duty: Stranger in a Strange Pub.”
The image you see at the above right is a preview of one of their upcoming films, which I’ll bring to you here in PopCult as soon as it’s available.
Enjoy, I’m still down South, playing with toys.
PopCult Note: Readers who have been paying close attention may notice that we have skipped an episode of the show in our chronological presentation of every episode of Radio Free Charleston. The show that would have run in this space will show up in three weeks, and it’ll make perfect sense. Trust us.
This week we head back to April, 2008, for “IWA East Coast Shirt,” the forty-first edition of our show. This music-packed show featured A Place Of Solace, Holden Caulfield, and from Nashville, special guests The Coal Men, who crashed at Stately Radio Free Charleston Manor one night after performing at The Empty Glass.
We also had an announcement from The Concept, and a short burst of animation from my brother Frank. I hosted from Davis Park, using a real microphone for the first time on the show. It made a difference, and that ten-dollar mic that I bought at Sun Electronics back in the early 1990s is still part of the RFC production arsenal.
I’m not sure about The Coal Men, but every other group on this show, and Sun Electronics too, have either broken up or fallen off the face of the Earth. Read the original production notes HERE.
