It’s a rerun of sorts with this week’s Radio Free Charleston at New Appalachian Radio. As you already know if you read PopCult yesterday, a computer crash happened at a very bad time, so there is no RFC MINI SHOW this week, and we were also unable to finish our very special streaming tribute show to the late Tom Medvick. Both of those shows will wing their way to you next week.
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. You can also listen to Radio Free Charleston Saturday at Midnight. Saturday, RFC airs for six hours, starting at midnight.
So this week at New Appalachian Radio you will get to hear the first two streaming episodes of Radio Free Charleston combined into one, two-hour block. You may recall that our first two shows were only an hour long each, so this way you can enjoy them all in one tasty bunch.
This was back when I was still pretending to call the show “Radio Free Charleston: Volume Three,” and we didn’t have a theme hour because we only had one hour.
Our first hour is basically a primer on the history of Radio Free Charleston. We kick it off with the very first local song I played on RFC back in 1989, and each segment has a theme of sorts.
