Our block of newness begins at 1:30 PM with Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle.

She also talks about an upcoming appearance at The Tranquility Salt Cave in Columbus and reads from her syndicated column.

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.

At 2 PM Beatles Blast presents part five of The Beatles Story, a legendary BBC radio documentary from 1973, 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 Wednesday Curtain Call unveils a new episode. This one runs the gamut from brand-new recordings by Broadway stars Kate Rockwell and Lesli Margherita to tunes from classics like Brigadoon and Paint Your Wagon to long lost obscurities like Oh, What A Lovely War and You Never Know.  You’ll also find some gems in the mix from recent shows, The Book of Mormon, Legally Blonde and James and the Giant Peach. It all adds up to a wonderful hour of music perfectly-chosen for the fan of musical theater.

Curtain Call debuts Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 7 AM and 8 PM and Saturday at 6 PM.

At 5 PM, stick around for radio drama on The AIR Audio Playhouse. This week it’s Dame Maggie Smith in The Lady in the Van.
