2019 marks 30 years since the debut of Radio Free Charleston on Broadcast radio. For the next three days on The AIR we present all-day marathons of Radio Free Charleston. To hear hours and hours of great local music all you have to do is tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 7 AM to Midnight you can hear a few dozen of our best episodes of RFC, featuring an assortment of great local musicians at their best. The Radio Free Charleston Archives go back more than fifty years, and you’ll hear a wide range of music from Rock to Jazz to Pop to Country, Punk, Metal, Ska, Classical, Ambient and more.
This is your chance to get up to speed on Charleston’s best-kept secret. No other radio station has displayed this level of committment to our homegrown talent, and it’s a blast to be able to share it with thousands of listeners around the world on The AIR.
Thursday at Midnight The AIR will switch over for one of our weekly overnight marathons of The Swing Shift. If we pre-empted it, our loyal listeners in Europe and South America would be very angry. Friday at Midnight you can get a preview of our new Friday overnight schedule of talk, comedy and music programming that will kick off in earnest in July. Saturday, however, Radio Free Charleston will keep going, with this week’s new episode kicking off the regular weekend midnight marathon.
RFC began life as an overnight program on broadcast radio. Years after office politics ended that version of the show it was reborn as a video program, first on The Gazz.com and then later on YouTube. More recently we returned to our radio roots on PopCult’s own internet radio statin, The AIR, but the video version of the show is still a thing. You never know when a new episode will pop up.
Radio Free Charleston can be heard Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, with replays Thursday at 2 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight and Sunday at 1 PM, exclusively on The AIR. Tune in and hear what you’ve been missing.
