Tuesday on The AIR we deliver brand-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, Psychedelic Shack and The Swing Shift. In order to hear these gems, 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 yet another three-hour Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week it’s another show jam-packed with great music from Charleston and the whole world.  This week we open with new music from Jay Parade and bring you a brand-new tune from Kansas, plus fresh music from Jerks, Bob Dylan, Mark Beckner Group and more . It’s three all-new hours with tons of surprises.

We have a new episode of The Swing Shift at 3 PM Tuesday, but as I write this, It’s not quite done yet. It will be a mixtape show, focussing on the original Big Band Swing Era and it opens with Woody Herman, but the rest of the playlist is undetermined. I’m recording it Tuesday morning, right after I write this post.  Believe me when I tell you it will Swing with the white-hot heat of a thousand swinging suns.

You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 7 AM and 6 PM, Thursday at 7 PM and Saturday at 5 PM, only on The AIR. You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.
