Monday Morning Art: The Hot Streets


If you’ve poked your head outside of the safety of air conditioning anytime in the the past three or five months, you may have noticed that it’s been hot, painfully hot, some would even say “gosh-damned heckishly hot.” In fact, we just wrapped up the hottest July in recorded history, and that’s not just on Earth, but also includes all the other planets and the sun. To capture this environment of extreme hottery, today’s art is a digital painting of a scene from Summers Street in Charleston, seconds before things reach a critical temperature and burst into flames.

Meanwhile, Monday on our sister internet radio station, The AIR, the Monday Marathon keeps you cool as a cucumber with 24 hours of The Swing Shift  You can listen to a full day of yours truly spinning the best Swing music of the last century, beginning at 7 AM and running through Tuesday morning.  In fact, if you are one of our loyal international listeners, you may know that this marathon immediately follows the regular Midnight Sunday marathon of The Swing Shift, so if you tune in early enough, you can hear 31 hours of The Swing Shift, with no repeats among them.
