With your humble blogger and internet radio host feeling a bit under the weather (nothing serious, and not a problem with my voice) Tuesday on The AIR  I play Dr. Frankenstein and stitch together an episode of Radio Free Charleston volume 4 and Radio Free Charleston International to make a brand-new three hour episode of RFC V5. Both of the original shows are from early 2016, and neither has been heard by anyone for about five years.

It’s an interesting artifact, and it’s still jam-packed with three hours of great local and non-local music. 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 the cool embedded player over at the top of the right column.

At 10 AM and 10 PM you can hear this compilation of RFC volume 4, episode 7 and RFC International episode 2. Instead of just running these shows back to back, I interwove them to seem more like the current format of the show.  However, becuause of the slicing and dicing, I didn’t break this show down into three separate hours like I usually do. These shows were produced when The AIR was still using the “Appalachian Internet Radio” moniker.  So you’ll hear that a few times.  both shows were loaded with good music, and I think my monster of a playlist is pretty impressive…
