We offer up a lazy new episode of RFC today on The AIR.   Radio Free Charleston, is three hours of great local, independent free-form radio every week, and this week we’re pulling double duty…or slacking off, depending on your perspective.  To listen to The AIR, 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 found elsewhere on this page.  

You can hear Radio Free Charleston Tuesdays at 10 AM and 10 PM, with tons of replays throughout the week.

This week we’re doing double-shots. That means you’ll hear two songs in a row from our large local archives, with a dash of indie artists mixed in, just to keep you on your toes.

This is largely archive music from the last two years, but we do slip in a few new or previously unheard tracks from The Aquabats, Mediogres, The Settlement, Well Tempered Madness and Nixon Black.

Because your humble blogger and radio host just got back from a fun trip up North, and has to edit video and photo essays about said trip, this week our playlist does not contain links to the artists we’re playing. They are all mainstays of RFC from the last few years, so if you’re curious, just go to the search window over in the right column, type in their name, and you should be transported to one of the many previous episodes that includes links to their music.

With holidays, medical stuff, potential further trips, a giant stack of comic books and other time-invasive things happening, this seemed to be the best thing to sacrifice. Otherwise I wouldn’t have time to record this show, or produce this week’s new Curtain Call and MIRRORBALL.

So check out this playlist, which does not have links this week.
