Tuesday on The AIR we deliver an ecologically-responsible episode of Radio Free Charleston.  In order to hear this three-hour blast from the recent past, you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this convenient embedded radio player…

It’s time for a sort of newish Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR.

This week your PopCulteer is slacking off a bit again. I know, I’m getting really good at this. Since I’m trying to get ahead on The 2020 PopCult Gift Guide, I needed to take some time off from radio this week (yeah, just like last week), so I’m recycling episodes of Radio Free Charleston and Radio Free Charleston International from the week of April 15, 2018, to fill up our three-hour timeslot this week.

We do open with one new track, by The Bounty, a Columbus band that was a fixture on the Charleston music scene back around 1990, and now count one John “Sham Voodoo” Estep among their ranks. They reunited for a new album last year, Everybody Loves A Second Act, and “Stop” is one of the songs we hadn’t gotten around to playing yet from it.

Our other afternoon programs are shiny, gem-like encores today. Trust me, it’ll still be fantastic. Check out this playlist for our eco-friendly RFC
