Playtime Radio: We Meet the Q Brothers and Many More Musicians

The Q Brothers perform Othello: The Remix.

Here’s this week’s podcast for Playtime with Bill Turck and Kerri Kendall, our radio arts partner. Third Coast Review news and reviews are highlighted and our writers sometimes appear on the Sunday afternoon arts radio show. Playtime broadcasts on WCGO, 1590AM and 95.9FM, each Sunday from 1 to 3pm. You can listen to the show here and it also streams on Facebook. You can listen to Playtime later on our site too.

Here’s host Bill Turck’s description of what you’ll hear on Playtime’s latest edition.

“On Playtime with Bill Turck and Kerri Kendall: Lainie Petersen with the Theater Report. We visit with the Q Brothers, the only team to put on a hip-hop adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello at the Globe Theatre in London and at Cook County Jail. They’ve got a great new album for the whole family: Othello: The Remix. Pat Mulligan from Facebook’s Mulligan’s Virtual Bar joins us and from Two Rivers, the great caricature artist Dean Konop. We’re talking with our good friend pastor Scott Marsh from the Michigan flood zone about resources to help folks there. Plus we have new music from upcoming artists on the show—bluesman Johnny Burgin from his No Border Blues, a brand new song from Chip Ratliff, with Chris Greene, Mark Lofgren, the Sunshine Boys, Glam Punk Rockers, Tiny Bits of Giants Blood, Black Friars Social Club, Carmine and Vinny Appice. Nashville singer-songwriter Phillip Michael Scales, who was recently Lightning 100’s ‘Local Artist of the Week,’ has released the new single “Find A Way.” Find out more about him at”
