It’s a new November day on The AIR  as we premiere new a episode of Radio Free Charleston! You simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay here and  listen to the cool embedded player elsewhere on this page.

We’ve created another new/old hybrid for you this week that you can hear at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday. The first hour is filled with new, local and independent music, mixed with a few mainstream releases. It kicks off with new music from Bane Star, and continues with some exciting new stuff from the Chicago band, Custard Flux, plus new music from Paul Weller, Simple Minds, Frenchy and The Punk, Robyn Hitchcock, David Synn, Todd Rundgren with Thomas Dolby and Panic at the Damn Disco.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store (live links for the first hour will take you to the artist’s pages where possible)…
