We have a full-blown PopCulteer coming your way Friday afternoon, but ths morning we’re going to tell you about today’s schedule on The AIR, as Friday  sees new episodes of Radio Free Charleston International and Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Friday mornings now kick off with a 7 AM replay of the week’s new episode of Prognosis, followed by Word Association with Lee & Rudy at 9 AM and The BS Crazy Show at 9:30. This one-hour combo of Word Association and The BS Crazy Show will repeat at 9 PM, for those of you who don’t want to listen to these NSFW programs at work.

At 10 AM The AIR will broadcast The Best of The Real with Mark Wolfe. At 11 AM we’ll bring you two hours of The AIR Music Mix, which this week means a replay of both episodes of our crossover between Curtain Call and The Swing Shift..

Then at 1 PM we will debut the week’s new edition of Radio Free Charleston International. This week, inspired by Herman Linte’s symphonic edition of Prognosis, your host (and PopCulteer), assembled a two-hour mixtape featuring his favorite music by his favorite artists of all time. The playlist for this show will appear at the bottom of this post.

At 3 PM Sydney’s Big Electric Cat presents a special 40th anniversary salute to The Cure, with two solid hours of early music by the band, dating back to their New Wave Music roots. We don’t have the full playlist, but you can expect all their biggest hits in this two-hour special.

These are the quick notes to whet your appetite for The AIR, and before we go, here’s the playlist for the 1PM and 10 PM airings of RFC International...
