RFC 002 "RVD Shirt" from Rudy Panucci on Vimeo.

Rudy RFC 002Our second episode, from August 2006, presented music from Stephen Beckner and The Sleeping Dons. The Sleeping Dons were Sean Richardson, Jay Lukens and Deron Sodaro. We also had animation from Frank Panucci and a special sneak preview of the then-upcoming Batman movie, which eventually got this episode banned from YouTube. That’s a story we’re saving for the RFC book.

“RVD Shirt” began the Radio Free Charleston tradition of naming the show after the shirt I was wearing. Over 200 shows in, this once-nifty idea is beginning to take up a lot of room in my house. With this episode, we established our basic format, but we still had a ways to go to find our voice. Host segments were shot at the late, lamented LiveMix Studio by Brian Young.
