Opening Track: Superfetch “White Horse”

Superfetch is a brand-new entity, an avant-electronic band made up of local music greats who, for the moment, will remain anonymous. However, the band includes some of my oldest friends. They’ve never made music like this before. We’re thrilled to open This week’s Radio Free Charleston podcast with this group.

Our theme in this week’s second hour is Shepardstown’s own World Without Fear. This was a fantastic band that staked out their sonic territory somewhere between U2 and REM. We will bring you their entire self-titled debut album from 1989, plus we’ll fill out the hour with a recent live track from the band’s frontman, Scooter Scudieri.

Due to ongoing software upgrades at Voices of Appalachia, this show will premiere as a podcast. You can listen to it right here HERE, or download it for later. The technical issues at VOA are taking a lot longer to sort out than expected, but we hope to be back in the swing of things soon. There are big things planned for New Appalachian Radio once everything is squared away.
