Tuesday on The AIR we deliver a new episode of Radio Free Charleston, with a first hour that’s loaded with new music from The Empty Hearts, Mark Beckner Group, The Killers, Jay Parade and more. For the second and third hours we bring you a slightly edited encore of the third episode of RFC volume 3, from 2014.  In order to hear the show, you simply have to find your way over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this neat-o keen embedded radio player…

We have yet another three-hour Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week our first hour is all-new, loaded with great, mostly-new music. Hours two and three bring you a classic episode from early in our Voices of Appalachia Radio run. Hence the old-school graphic at right.

You will hear that episode as it was originally broadcast, with one exception. An artist who was featured on that show has recently spewed forth with some hateful, racist comments, and as a result will never be heard on The AIR again. He has lost all his endorsements and voice-over jobs, and he has only himself to blame. He usually played a misogynistic, ignorant redneck while in character. It’s sad to discover that it wasn’t an act.

However this is still a killer show. Check out the playlist to see all the goodies we bring you this week…
