This week, rather than tackle a huge theme in the second hour of Radio Free Charleston on New Appalachian Radio, we’ve salted the show with lots of little themes, along with a big blast of our trademark randomisity at the end of the show. Update: You can listen to this show now in the Voices of Appalachia archive HERE
You can listen to Radio Free Charleston’s streaming radio incarnation at 10 AM and 10 PM on Tuesdays (and again at midnight Thursday) at New Appalachian Radio, part of Voices of Appalachia. If you miss it, check our the archives for previously-aired shows.
We kick off with the mini-theme of “New Music,” featuring a song from John Lancasters brand-new EP, which is due out in digital form this week.
