tuesday-4-18-lgoOur internet radio station, The AIR, is making Tuesdays bigger than ever with three specialty music programs.  Today, Radio Free Charleston opens with Fabulous Head, The Swing Shift brings you an hour of great Wing Music and Dexter Checkers returns with the first hour-long edition of Ska Madness.  You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just settle down right here on this embedded radio player…

A t 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday join us for a new hour of great local music on Radio Free Charleston. This week we open the show with a new track from Fabulous Head, then launch into a trek through the RFC archives. The playlist is below the jump.

At noon we offer up a bonus hour of Radio Free Charleston from just a few weeks ago, so you can overdose on great local music. 1 PM sees two hours of mystery music that you’ll have to hear to believe.

3 PM sees a brand-new episode of The Swing Shift, featuring Big Bad VooDoo Daddy, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Royal Crown Revue and more. You’ll find the playlist for this week’s show below the RFC playlist.

5 PM sees the return of Dexter Checkers and Ska Madness. This is the first hour-long edition of the program, and in it Dexter brings you the entire debut album, “I Just Can’t Stop It,” by The English Beat.

At 6 PM our daily New Music Show continues, while at 6:30 PM, by Popular Demand, it’s The Crazy Show. At 7 PM we offer up a replay of The RFC Interview with Mark Wolfe, and at 8 PM it’s a replay of last weeks Sydney’s Big Electric Cat.

10 PM is when Radio Free Charleston is heard again, followed by last week’s Radio Free Charleston International, and an all-night marathon of Radio Coolsville with DJ Betty Rock

The AIR is the place to go for interruption-free music. Below the jump you’ll find the playlists I promised you:
