new logo 0005Tuesday means great music on The AIR.  An all-new Radio Free Charleston kicks it off at 10 AM and 10 PM, while a new edition of The Swing Shift takes over at 3 PM.

As is always the case, you can tune in at The AIR website or on this special little embedded radio player widget…

After an encore of this week’s Prognosis at 7 AM (featuring Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of the Worlds) and an encore of the Halloween episode of Curtain Call at 9 AM, we have a fresh installment of Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM. This week the show brings you more great local music, starting with a brand-new track from Payback’s A Bitch. Check out the playlist at the end of this post. RFC is followed by replays of the two previous week’s worth of Radio Free Charleston, giving you three full hours of fantastic local music.

1 PM is the new time for Radio Coolsville, as DJ Betty Rock has put the show on hiatus at WMUL to focus on her studies. We’ll bring you new episodes as soon as production resumes.

At 3 PM, The AIR offers up a brand-new episode of The Swing Shift. This is the show where your PopCulteer indulges in his love of Swing Music, bringing you the hottest big band tunes from the last century. This week we open the show with brand new music from The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and then we give you restless leg syndrome with artists like Royal Crown Revue, Atomic Fireballs, Artie Shaw, Lavay Smith and her Red Hot Skillet Lickers and more. Check out the full playlist at the bottom of this post. To get you acclimated to this modern new sound coming out of your internet, this week we bring you TWO EXTRA HOURS of The Swing Shift starting at 5 PM.

At 7 PM we shift gears and present a special replay of our second hour of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This is followed by the new prime-time replay of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, our New Wave extravaganza which will now be heard every Tuesday at 8 PM, leading into the second airing of Radio Free Charleston at 10 PM.

Last week’s Radio Free Charleston International airs at 11 PM, and overnight you can hear the last call for our Halloween programming.
