Tuesday on The AIR  we deliver yet another partly brand-new episode of Radio Free Charleston. It’s three hours of music that lets you support the local scene and then soak in your PopCulteer’s strange musical inclinations. You simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and listen to the cool embedded player over at the top of the right column.

Yes, once again we have a newish Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  Your PopCulteer is slacking off because it’s his birthday week and he has a magazine deadline.  This  week on RFC we open with a solid hour of  great local music.  You’ll hear the RFC debuts of Hello June, Static Fur, Cassius At Best and plenty of other new tracks from local artists in one all-new hour of RFC, and then we revisit one of the 2018 episodes of RFC International from before we merged it into the three-hour behemoth you have come to know and love.

So that’s one brand-new, all-local hour, and two classic hours of RFC International from 2018.

Check out the playlist to see all the goodies we bring you this week…

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR, with replays Wednesday at 9 AM, Thursday at 3 PM. Friday at 7 PM, plus Saturday afternoon, and again at Midnight, and then one more replay Monday at 11 AM. We are going to revamp the schedule at The AIR, probably just after Labor Day, so you should soon have more chances to hear RFC than ever!

As is now the norm, I’m also going to  embed a low-fi, mono version of this show right in this post, right here so you can listen on demand.


After RFC, stick around for USDA Grade-A Choice encores of MIRRORBALL at 1 PM, Ska Madness at 2 PM and The Swing Shift at 3 PM.
