rfc-5-23New episodes of Radio Free Charleston, and The Swing Shift debut Tuesday at 10 AM, and 3 PM on The AIR.Listeners will get a huge load of local music, plus a special live dose of retro Swing from The Royal Crown Revue.

You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just settle down right here on this embedded radio player…

At 10 AM and 10 PM Radio Free Charleston opens with the title track from Scarlet Revolt’s new CD, “Cold Town.”  Fans of the transmogrified “Under Surveillance” will want to make it out to The Empty Glass Sunday night at 7 PM for the cover-free release party for Scarlet Revolt’s “Bleed,” a song that’s currently in rotation on The New Music Show on The AIR. RFC continues with new music from Pale Nova, Kerry Hughes, The Company Stores, Bon Air and more.  See the playlist below.

swing-shiftplylistAt 3 PM The Swing Shift celebrates reaching twenty-five episodes with an hour-long live concert by The Royal Crown Revue, recorded in Australia. Listeners can dance their butts off to songs like “Rock This Boogie,” “Stormy Weather,” “Perdido,” “Watts Local,” “Fever” and more. It’s a special treat to mark out little milestone.

At 5 PM Dexter Checkers checks in with a replay of his first hour-long episode of Ska Madness, focussing on The English Beat’s first album. Our friends at Haversham Recording Institute have been swamped with what us Americans call, “paying work,” and so they needed to take a couple of weeks off.

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 Radio Coolsville, and at 8 PM it’s a replay of last week’s episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat.

rfc-logo-24-00510 PM is when Radio Free Charleston is heard again, followed at 11 PM by Radio Free Charleston International, and then that’s followed by a star-studded all-night marathon of Prognosis at 1 AM.
