“Sock ’em Who-Bots Shirt” is the first episode of Radio Free Charleston for 2013. Host segments for this episode were recorded at The Dale Morton Studio ┬áin Hurricane, WV. Our musical guests are Frenchy and The Punk, Flare Baroshi, and Johnny C and The Scurvy Dogs. This episode also includes a short film by K.D. Lett and an exclusive trailer for the MTV series “BuckWild,” with footage you won’t see anywhere else.

Big thanks go out to Dale Morton, who allowed us into his mascot and costume studio so that we could have loads of really cool looking stuff in the background. Plus, as a bonus, we got to shoot indoors during the winter. Dale does amazing work and has an international list of clients ranging from schools to big name corporations to well-traveled members of the cosplay community. It was a real treat to record our host segments in such a cool place.

We open the show with a short look at the MTV series “BuckWild” that you won’t see anywhere else. Seriously, this is, like, truly and emphatically exclusive, and we’re the only ones who have it and MTV doesn’t mind at all that we’re showing it and it’s 150% genuine, really.

Frenchy and The Punk

Frenchy and The Punk make a triumphant return to Radio Free Charleston with their performance of “The Confession of Jack Bonnie and Sally Clyde,”

A touch of “Snow”

K.D. Lett, an extremely talented photographer and filmmaker based in Charleston, created a wonderful short film out of multiple exposures of The Charleston Ballet, taken during a performance of “The Nutcracker.” We’re very happy to present his short film, “Snow.”
