Tuesday on The AIR we once again deliver a brand-new episode of Radio Free Charleston.   If you want to hear the joyous and non-fattening ear candy  yourself, you simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to the cool embedded player over at the top of the right column.

You can hear our brand-new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week we open with the title track from Lady D’s new album and we bring you new local music from Boldly Go, Unmanned, mediogres, The Jasons and more. Plus we smack you in the ears with new stuff from IDKHOW, Weezer, Paul McCartney, Guitarmy Of One and more. This tightly-packed three-hour radio bomb also has some wild and obscure album tracks and stuff from the RFC Archives.

Check the links in the playlist to buy music from the artists on the show this week.  We have tons of exciting new and old music from West Virginia and around the world for you here.

Check out the playlist to see all the goodies we bring you this week…

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR, with replays Thursday at 3 PM, Friday at 9 AM and 7 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight, Sunday at 11 AM and the next Monday at 8 PM, exclusively on The AIR.

I’m also going to  embed a low-fi, mono version of this show right in this post, right here so you can listen on demand.


The rest of our AIR Music Specialty programs are encores today. Nigel Pye, along with our other friends at Haversham Recording Institute have finally become overwhelmed by the latest lockdown in the UK, and won’t be able to fit producing Prognosis, Sydney’s Big Electric Cat and Psychedelic Shack into their remote-working schedule for the next several weeks (with one last show we might get this week because it’s in progress). So we’ll be bringing you classic episodes while we wait for things to clear up.

And in related news, I am unlikely to have a new episode of The Swing Shift until next week, because of some projects around the house that required my immediate attention. You can still hear The Swing Shift Tuesdays at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 7 AM and 6 PM, Thursday at 2 PM,  Saturday at 5 PM and Sunday at 10 AM, only on The AIR. You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.
