Celebrating three years as PopCult’s adjunct radio station, we have an afternoon of all-new-programming Tuesday on The AIR as we deliver new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, Psychedelic Shack and The Swing Shift to our loyal listeners. Zip on over and tune in at the website, or be a lazy bum and listen to this embedded radio player…

It all kicks off at 10 AM (with a replay at 10 PM– all times EDT) with a brand-new edition of Radio Free Charleston. This week’s show is once-again loaded with great local music by some of the Charleston area’s finest bands (and a few who were just passing through).

I’m also still experimenting with something new this week. If my experiment works (UPDATE: It should, now), you will be able to click on the episode number above the playlist that follows, and go to a page where you can download a low-res version of this week’s show.  I’m trying this to see if it’s feasible to do every week. We may have to take them down after a while to conserve server space or there may be technical issues since this is new thing. Give it a shot if you don’t have time to tune in to our live stream, why don’cha? So far it seems to be working.
