Tuesday on The AIR we deliver brand-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, and NOISE BRIGADE.  In order to hear these lovely new sonic 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 happy little embedded radio player…

We have yet another new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This show kicks off with brand-new music from local band, Abandon The Ship (really, the album, “Overboard,” was just released three days ago), and new music from The Empty Hearts, Bananarama, Guided by Voices and The Killers with K.D. Lang. And also in this three-hour mix of local, national and international artists, we bring you a six-song set of tunes recorded live at Charleston’s World Famous Empty Glass, and a six-song suite from Athens Ohio-based Radarhill (with Nick Weckman).

Check out the playlist to see all the fantastic goodies we bring you this week…

NOISE BRIGADE alternates weeks with Psychedelic Shack Tuesdays at 2 PM, with replays those weeks on Wednesday at 11 AM and 10 PM, Thursday at 8 AM, Friday at Noon, Saturday at 10 AM, Sunday at 4 PM and Monday at 7 PM.

At 3 PM your PopCulteer brings you some encore plays of The Swing Shift. I’m taking some time to work on our next batch of episodes, which will drop two weeks from now. We are quickly approaching episode 100 of The Swing Shift, and to mark the occasion I plan to devote three episodes to 100 years of Swing, with sets of tunes from each decade. Because of this, I want to take my time to pick the perfect playlist. And next week’s RFC marathon gives me an extra week to put it all together. The current plan is for episodes 99, 100 and 101 to all debut on the same day, in just two weeks.

You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 7 AM and 6 PM, Thursday at 2 PM and Saturday at 5 PM, only on The AIR. You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.
