Even in the midst of a four-day Radio Free Charleston Marathon on The AIR we offer up a newish edition of our flaghip show,  Radio Free Charleston. In order to hear these this new episode 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 this excitable little embedded radio player…

We have a partly new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday. Let me explain.

Over the last couple of months I’ve had, maybe, a dozen or so requests to replay an episode of Radio Free Charleston International from 2016 that paid tribute to David Bowie. We don’t really run RFC International since we combined it with RFC into the three-hour Radio Free Charleston V5. so I decided to do one new hour of RFC, packed with plenty of local and new music, and then make hours two and three an encore of our Bowie tribute. This way I get to do less work, you get a newish episode of the show, and the Bowie fans get to hear the tribute for the first time in three years. So everybody’s happy!

And we are airing this episode in its normal timeslots this week, even though we have a marathon going on. You can hear it Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, and Thursday at 3 PM.

It’s a pretty happenin’ show. Check out the playlist…
