radio 02It’s Friday afternoon and time to regale you with tales of the fine weekend programming on Appalachian Independent Radio, “The AIR,” Charleston’s finest source of mutated and inspiring 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 listen in as the two ramble on incessantly about Harvey Comics, the dearly-departed comic book publisher behind Casper the Friendly Ghost, Richie Rich, Sad Sack and Baby Huey. Rudy shows his age here, as his memories of the comic book company seem to be of a different era than Lee’s.

At 9 PM we might get a new episode of Laugh Appalachia with Lee Hale, we might not. You’ll have to tune in and see.  That mysterious half-hour is followed at 9:30 with an encore presentation of Word Association where Lee and Rudy spend thirty minutes trying in vain to narrow down the topic of Toy Robots. 10 PM sees a replay of this week’s brand-new Radio Free Charleston International, loaded with tons of cool new music and a couple of Prince songs. You can read the whole playlist HERE.
