The AIR is back with all-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift Tuesday!   If that sounds appealing to you, then 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 convenient embedded radio player lurking over in the right-hand column of this blog.

At 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday we will bring you three new hours of Radio Free Charleston. This episode is loaded with exciting new local music, exciting new music from around the world, plus a healthy dose of classic tracks from both those catagories, too!
