You can expect loads of fantastic programming tonight on Appalachian Independent Radio. Kicking things off at 8 PM it’s a brand-new episode of Word Association with Lee and Rudy. This week the boys discuss the early days of cable television, when the Superstations arose and major cable networks had to share time on the same satellite transponders. You may even hear Rudy sing the original BET jingle while Lee Harrah explains how he discovered hockey.
Then at 9 PM it’s the first episode of Laugh Appalachia with Lee Hale. This is a new 30-minute comedy talk show with a convenient twist. I’ll let Lee tell you about it, ” We are creating a show that will be for adults, about adult-ish things, but you’ll be able to listen to the show over your speakers at work if you so please, without the risk of a coworker overhearing the foul language or content that can cause issues. We’ll be watching the f-bombs, among countless other words, so you don’t have to worry about a boss or client walking in and being judgy. Instead, you’ll be able to thoroughly enjoy this show, and even share it with your friends and coworkers.” Laugh Appalachia will run Fridays at 9 AM and 9 PM on AIRadio.
Stick around, because at 9:30 PM we will present a special replay of the episo0de of Word Association with Lee and Rudy that looks at the late, lamented Lemmy. This has been one of our most-requested shows to replay because of Lee Harrah’s personal story about hanging out with the legendary punk/metal god.
At 10 PM you can listen to a replay of this week’s Radio Free Charleston International. Also remember that you can listen to the entire General Substances/RFC line-up starting Saturday mornings at 9 AM. Starting this week you can also hear a replay of Booster Pack at 2 PM, giving you a six-hour excuse to sit motionless and listen to the internet all morning on Saturday.
