It’s Friday afternoon and that means it’s time to tell you about all the fine weekend programming on The AIR, Charleston’s niftiest source of amazing and apocryphal original radio programming. You can listen at the AIRadio website, or tune in on this neat little virtual radio set…
Tonight at 8 PM on Word Association with Lee and Rudy, Rudy Panucci and Lee Harrah discuss lame superheroes. Of course the discussion begins with Aquaman, but it quickly veers off into talk of the android Captain Marvel who could fly apart simply by yelling the magic word, “Split!” There are also tales of Fatman, the Human Flying Saucer and quick mentions of Fruitman and Sooper Hippie. This is a brisk half-hour of obscure comic book esoterica that devolves into a healthy wallow in nerdly cheesiness.
At 9 PM we will be treated to a brand-new episode of Laugh Appalachia with Lee Hale. At 9:30 listen to an encore presentation of last week’s Word Association where Lee and Rudy spend thirty minutes .talking about M*A*S*H. 10 PM sees a replay of this week’s brand-new Radio Free Charleston International, which was part two of our recreation of an original Radio Free Charleston broadcast from 1990.
This week we’re trying something new overnight Friday, with repeats of Radio Free Charleston and Radio Free Charleston International running all night long, just to give you an extra chance to listen to our shows that you may have missed. The fun starts start at midnight and will run until our regularly-schedule Saturday morning replays.
Saturday morning check back here for a replay of all of the cool new shows that I had a hand in this week, winding up at 2 PM with an encore of this week’s edition of The Booster Pack, a discussion of the dark side of conventions. Starting Saturday at 9 AM, you can stay at home and listen to AIRadio for six straight hours to hear a marathon of cool programming.
The line up kicks off at 9 AM with both parts of our local music special from January 1990 on Radio Free Charleston and on Radio Free Charleston International at 11 AM. Then at 1 PM it’s time to meet Mel on On The Road with Mel, followed by a discussion of lame superheroes on Word Association with Lee and Rudy and the pros and cons of cons on The Booster Pack.
You can listen to the entire General Substances/RFC line-up starting Saturday mornings at 9 AM on AIRadio. This is your best six-hour excuse to catch up with the coolest radio programming on the internet all morning on Saturday.
This Sunday we are once again experimenting with marathon programming as Radio Free Charleston kicks off at 1 AM, and various General Substances and Gorillafoot Productions programming fill The AIR until 10 PM. Tune in to see what all the fuss is about!
