Tune in to The AIR Wednesday for new episodes of three of our most popular programs. At 1 PM, Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle looks into Synchronicity and Coincidence. At 2 PM, Beatles Blast presents part three of a classic Beatles BBC radio documentary. At 3 PM Curtain Call returns as your host, Mel Larch, presents a tribute to the musical HAIR, marking fifty years since its debut on Broadway. Listen to it on The AIR (or this embedded player).
This week Michele talks about Synchronicty and Coincidence and whether or not the two concepts are mutually inclusive. Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle about fire drills, knowing when to follow instructions and when to not follow instructions, and how to figure out when and why to use your better judgement. You’ll also hear a tale of two Dennis the Menaces.
Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle can be heard Wednesday at 1:30 PM and 7 PM, with replays on The AIR Friday at 9:30 AM and Monday at 12:30 PM.
Continuing this week, Beatles Blast presents a re-edited radio series from 1973 devoted to The Beatles Story, a British radio history of the Fab Four which hasn’t been heard since its original broadcast. This third installment follows the band into the living hurricane that was Beatlemania.
Beatles Blast can be heard Wednesday at 2 PM, Thursday at 11 AM and 9 PM, Friday at 5 PM, and Tuesday at 9 AM.
At 3 PM Curtain Call returns after a brief hiatus with a show devoted to HAIR, the legendary “American Tribal Love-Rock Musical” by Jerome Ragni, James Rado, and Galt McDermott.
This week on Curtain Call Mel Larch brings you an all-star recreation of the highlights of this turning point in the history of the American musical, with performances from multiple recordings of the show, plus some choice, and in many cases unexpected cover tunes. You can expect to hear performances by such unexpected artists as Woody Herman, The Dickies, Treat Williams, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Nell Carter, Beverly D’Angelo and the casts of the 1967 off-Broadway production, the original Broadway cast and the original London cast of HAIR.
Curtain Call debuts Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 7 AM and 8 PM and Saturday at 6 PM.
Stay tuned all day, every day, for incredible music, thought-provoking talk and gut-busting comedy exclusively on The AIR.
