It’s Tuesday on The AIR  and that means it’s Radio Free Charleston time, and we’re back on track with another new three-hour episode of Radio Free Charleston. You simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to the cool embedded player found elsewhere on this page.

We have three full hours of music, much of it new, local and not, at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.   This week our latest Radio Free Charleston has killer new tunes from Foz Rotten, Kerosene Stars, Drop Coat, SkyFlake, Cosmic Bull, and more, plus a newly-reissued gem from Brian Diller and The Ride.

This week, as a special treat, I ramble incessantly during the show. It’s probably just fatigue from a couple of stressful weeks, but at different points of the show I bust out imitations of Arthur Brown and Dean Martin, plus I do a rambling intro for The Big Bad that I hope they find amusing.

Throughout the show we continue our mix of local, independent and major-label artists, just to keep you on your toes. This week we’re a little heavy on the local stuff, but you gotta support the local scene.

We also have new tunes from some Chicago friends, and our second hour opens with a track from SkyFlake, a new musical project from William Mull, the man behind the Forbidden Gallery comic books I’ve been raving about for several years now in PopCult.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store. Live links for local and indie artists will take you to the artist’s page…
