It’s Tuesday on The AIR  and you know what that means. Just like last week, it’s time for yet another one-third-new, three-hour  episode of Radio Free Charleston. 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 (If you’re reading PopCult on a desktop, that is. Phone readers have to go to the website).

Yes, it’s one more hybrid edition of Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.   This week we open with a full hour of  local and independent music, and then we hit you with two hours of classic Radio Free Charleston International from January, 2019.

Our first hour, opens with new music from J. Marinelli You’ll also hear cool music from The Heavy Editors (featuring former Feast of Stephen six-stringer, Joe Vallina), The Amos Steel Co., The Settlement and Corduroy Brown. We also have a new music from Julian Lennon and Def Leppard and a song from The Black Keys featuring Sierra Ferrell on backing vocals.

The second and third hours of our show re-present a mixtape edition of Radio Free Charleston International from January, 2019, when yours truly wanted to see how weird he could get.
