PopCult Rudy Panucci on Pop Culture


rfc-beatles-0016Your PopCulteer is hard at work editing and tweaking the music from last Friday’s Rubber Soul Beatles Marathon, and today you can hear two more hours this epic event on Radio Free Charleston International, Thursday at 3 PM on The AIR.

Tune in at The AIR website, or on this particularly fab embedded radio player…

Rubber Soul is the brainchild of Mark Scarpelli, as was this admirably insane idea of performing over two hundred Beatlesongs in one go. Rubber Soul is Mark, Greg Hunt, Garret Maner, Michele Toliver, Bryan Flowers and Brian Holstine, and they did an amazing job last Friday.

As we’ve been doing for a few days now, Thursday it’s time for more of this great marathon concert as we bring you big chunks of hours two, three and four, with a terrific list of guest vocalists and musicians. Just to remind you, I’m working through the recordings of the entire show, and plan to have every song that has acceptable sound quality (that’s most of them) ready to run as a marathon on The AIR on Valentine’s Day, starting at noon. This is part four of the marathon. Tune in to The AIR on Friday at 2 PM for part five, and Saturday at 9 PM for part six.

But today at 3 PM it’s part four…
