archive rfc image 04Just like this week’s Radio Free Charleston on The AIR, tonight at midnight Radio Free Charleston International will transport you back more than 26 years to our four-hour local extravaganza. It was early in January, 1990, right after RFC had been the subject of a profile in the Charleston Gazette written by Michael Lipton that I decided to devote all four hours of the show that was then broadcast on 96.1 FM, to local artists.

You can tune in to RFC International tonight at midnight with a replay Friday at 10 PM. Both episodes will air back-to-back Saturday morning, beginning a 9 AM. As always, the show can be heard on The AIR, or in this handy little embedded radio…

In part one, on RFC, you heard blocks of music from Brian Diller and The Ride, Three Bodies, Zone 3, The Bounty and more, plus we had a mini-history of Go Van Gogh as of 1990. RFC International brings you music from World Without Fear, Blue Million, Delta Hum The Swivels and more, plus we play side one of the first Stark Raven album.

Setting the scene, the last song we played last time was Larry Groce doing a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry.” We’re going to pick up where we left off with Larry doing a Warren Zevon tune.
