As promised, this week we have a brand-new Radio Free Charleston International, which you can hear at 3 PM Thursday timeslot on The AIR. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

As is our new Thursday norm, we now have a replay of this week’s Radio Free Charleston at 2 PM, followed by a brand-new episode of Radio Free Charleston International at 3 PM. For you old-timers who remember the original broadcast incarnation of , this combination comes close to recreating the original experience, with your PopCulteer unleashed to play whatever he felt like playing, mixed with a generous helping of great local music.

Radio Free Charleston International is the two-hour weekly show where Rudy Panucci (that’s me, by the way) gets to play whatever he wants. It’s our way of revisiting the golden age of free-format radio, which is sort of what inspired us to go into this medium in the first place. This week your humble host is still nursing a sore throat, so save for one voice over segment, this show is ALL MUSIC!

As a bonus, since I didn’t do a new episode of our local music showcase, Radio Free Charleston, this week. I’m including the title cut of David Synn’s new CD, The Mirror, which you can order now. Chances are I’ll open next week’s RFC with another track from this great new album.  Because I did this show “mixtape style,” the only way to know what I’m playing is to follow along with this playlist…
