Highlights Thursday on The AIR include a tribute to David Bowie on Radio Free Charleston International at 3 PM, followed immediately by this week’s all-instrumental edition of Radio Free Charleston, the area’s only regularly-scheduled local music radio program. Just for kicks we’ll throw in some Unknown Hinson and an overnight dose of Swing.
