Tuesday on The AIR your blogger and radio show host combines a mostly-local first hour with two hours of RFC International that haven’t been heard in five years, to bring you a three-hour mix of splendid free-format radio.
We have a ton of new music in our first hour, and all but one song is local. Our second and third hours were mostly new music in 2017, so you can pretend it’s new too! To hear all this cool local music you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and listen to the cool embedded player over at the top of the right column.
At 10 AM and 10 PM (Eastern Time) you can hear this new-old episode of RFC, and just enjoy the bejesus out of it.
Our opening hour has exciting music from folks who have just put out new albums, including Spencer Elliott, The John Inghram Band and Three’s Company Blues, while our final two hours are loaded with music ranging from Cheap Trick to Reginia Spektor to Midnight Oil.

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR, with replays Wednesday at 9 AM, Thursday at 3 PM, Friday at 9 AM, Saturday at Noon and Midnight, and Monday at 11 AM, exclusively on The AIR. Now you can also hear a different episode of RFC every weekday at 5 PM, and we bring you a marathon all night long Saturday night/Sunday morning.
I’m also going to embed a low-fi, mono version of this show right in this post, right here so you can listen on demand.
After RFC, stick around for encores of MIRRORBALL at 1 PM, and Ska Madness at 2 PM. At 3 PM we have two classic episodes of The Swing Shift. I do apologize for the lack of new episodes of The Swing Shift lately. I plan to take a day and record several new episodes soon. It’s just been rough working it into my schedule.
