OK, you have not been living under a rock and you know the solar eclipse is coming August 21. In Madras, the total eclipse will take place at 10:19 a.m.
Whatever else you might be doing, listen to KPOV for the perfect eclipse soundtrack. Beginning at 10:00 a.m., KPOV show Acid Washed Genes will begin playing Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon,” synched with the timing of eclipse totality. Please respect people around you with your volume or wear your headphones!
