4-13-rfci-logo-03Thursday, as you may know, is usually when we drop a new Radio Free Charleston International on an unsuspecting public at 3 PM on The AIR. This week is no different in that regard. Tune in at the website, or on this handy embedded radio player…

Having taken the first part of the week off, your PopCulteer is back to the RFC International grind, with a show that is filled to the brim with great music, both new and old.

After another morning and afternoon filled with great new music plus special replays of Curtain Call and Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, we drop a megaton bomb of  music on Radio Free Charleston International at 3 PM with yet another show that harkens back to the glory days of free-format radio.

Listeners will get to hear fantastic music by Muse, YES, The Surfaris, Paul McCartney, Chuck Berry, Buckingham/McVie, Todd Rundgren and Daryl Hall, Gong and more. It’s another of our trademark gobbeldygook episodes that shouldn’t work, but on RFC International, we somehow find a way to make it all flow into a cohesive musical experience.

You can hear Radio Free Charleston International on The AIR Thursday at 3 PM, with replays Friday at 9 AM and 10 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Sunday at 1 AM and 10 PM.

Preceding RFC International on Thursday,you can listen to this week’s Radio Free Charleston at 2 PM, with another recent episode of our local music showcase at 5 PM. Then it’s The New Music Show at 6 PM , and The Crazy Show at 6:30 PM. In prime-time, it’s this week’s episodes of The Swing Shift and Curtain Call, followed at 10 PM by Live From The Empty Glass (this week with loads of surprises). All night long after that, it’s a marathon of The Swing Shift.
