4-11-logo-02Our internet radio station, The AIR, is still chugging along with a fresh batch of shows on our newly-refined schedule.  Today, Radio Free Charleston opens with Membrane Cell, recorded live at The Blue Parrot, and The Swing Shift brings you an hour of Ella Fitzgerald.  You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just settle down right here on this embedded radio player…

A t 1o 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 Membrane Cell, the new band featuring David Synn and Kenny Booth, and continue with new music from The Velvet Brothers, Wren Allen Band, Bon Air and Fabuous Head. We dip into the RFC archives for classic tracks from Flare Baroshi, Hasil Adkins, Feast of Stephen, 69 Fingers and more.  Check out the playkist down below the jump. Radio Free Charleston replays at 10 PM Tuesday, 5 PM Thursday, 1o AM and Midnight Saturday and we stick reruns in wherever we can.

At noon we offer up three hours of Radio Free Charleston from February and March, so you can overdose on great local music.

3 PM sees a special new episode of The Swing Shift, with an hour of music by Ella Fitzgerald, commemorating her 100th birthday, which comes up on April 25. 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. Dexter is cooking up new hour-long episodes, but in the meantime we’re doubling-up on encores of his half-hour program.

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 last week’s triumphant return of DJ Betty Rock and Radio Coolsiville, 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 Herman Linte and Prognosis.
