Once again, we have an all-new-programming Tuesday on The AIR as we deliver new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, Psychedelic Shack and The Swing Shift to our loyal listeners. Why don’t you become one and tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

It all kicks off at 10 AM (with a replay at 10 PM– all times EDT) with a brand-new edition of Radio Free Charleston. This week’s show is loaded with great new music from John Radcliff, Spencer Elliott, Todd Burge, The Mediogres and more, plus we dig into the archives for some hidden gems, as we are doing with every show this year.

I’m also going to experiment with something new this week. If my experiment works, you will be able to click on the episode number above the playlist that follows, and go to a page where you can download a low-res version of this week’s show.  I’m trying this to see if it’s feasible to do every week. We may have to take them down after a while to conserve server space or there may be technical issues since this is new thing. Give it a shot if you don’t have time to tune in to our live stream, why don’cha?

Links in the playlist should take you to the artist’s websites, where possible.
