Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift are back today on The AIR. You can tune in at The AIR website, or just listen on this little embedded wonder…

At 10 AM and 10 PM our latest Radio Free Charleston mixes a couple of new tunes with about forty-five minutes of music resurrected from one of our old Voices of Appalachia shows. This was a voice-conserving move, since yours truly is still not 100% (but doing much, much better, thanks for asking). Check out the playlist below…


Poor Man’s Gravy “Leaving Today”
Brian Diller “Hey Mister Auctioneer”
Jordan Searls “Any Kind of Wind”
Dina Hornbaker “Black Coffee”
Sheldon Vance “Birthright”
Hitchcock Circus “Dirty Girl”
Three Bodies “My Friend”
Blue Million “Don’t Leave”
The Bounty “Buffalos”
Science of the Mind “Son of Sam”
David Synn “Anesthesia”
Karma To Burn “Bobbi, Bobbi, Bobbi, I’m Not”
BobaFlex “Strangle You”
Ptolemy “Event Horizon”

Radio Free Charleston can be heard Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, with replays Thursday at 2 PM, Friday at 8 PM and Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight, exclusively on The AIR.
