Aerial View was WFMU’s first regularly-scheduled phone-in talk show. Hosted by Chris T. and on the air since 1989, the show features topical conversation, interviews and many trips down the rabbit hole. Until further notice, Aerial View is only available as a podcast, available every Tuesday morning. Subscribe to the newsletter “See You Next Tuesday!” and find tons of archives at aerialview.me.
Guitar Guru Keith Hartel came down to the Tiger Den this past Saturday for one last Aerial View Guitar Lesson. This brings us to seven lessons in total, the most shows I've done on one topic with one guest. I hope you found them as fun and informative as I did. Here are the previous six programs:
Get The Knack
Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman & Howe
Talk Dirty To Me
Shakin’ All Over
Rumble E Minor Pentatonic Scale
Cat Scratch Fever Double Stops
Highway To Hell Major Pentatonic Scale
House Of The Holy
Game Of Throne
OJ: Made In America
I plan to continue my lessons with Keith because he's an excellent teacher and I'm enjoying the hell out of our time together. I might even be getting better as a guitarist, though I'm quite sure I'm the worst student he's ever had in terms of practicing between lessons. Yeesh.
Last Week: 2016 Mermaid Parade
Last week Aerial View brought you to the 2016 Mermaid Parade IN ITS ENTIRETY. Over two hours of stereo sound from the nation's greatest parade!

The End Is Near
There's only one Aerial View show left and then it's HASTA LA VISTA.
As mentioned previously, this SYNT (See You Next Tue!) newsletter will live on, so continue to look for it in your mailbox every Tuesday morning, 10 AM. I'm also working on a complete revamp of my website, with news to come shortly. I hope to have that done by the end of July.
NOTE: Once Aerial View ends, the SYNT newsletter will no longer emanate from my WFMU email address but from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add that address to your email "Allowed" list, so this newsletter doesn't go into your spam or junk folder.
There's no cover but there IS a two drink minimum. Please feel free to hit me up if you can't afford two drinks in Manhattan, and few can.
