Tuesday on The AIR it’s ALL NEW as we deliver brand-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, NOISE BRIGADE and The Swing Shift.  In order to hear these bright, shiny new gems, you simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this excitable little embedded radio player…

We have yet a new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  And when we say “NEW,” we mean it. Every song in this three-hour epic was released in 202, even the mystery bonus track at the end. We mix in some new local music, but we also have newly-released tracks from The Aquabats, The Rolling Stones, Blancmange, Pretenders, John Foxx, Miles Davis, Psychedelic Furs and many more.
