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’ show is devoted to instrumental music and opens with a brand-new track from Fayetteville’s Black Garlic. We dig back in the archives a bit, and mix up the old and new.

Check out the playlist:


Black Garlic “Blound Brears”
Fletcher’s Grove “Log Jam”
Socio Turmoil and The Dynamic Brain “Her Name Is Elana”
Karma To Burn “Nineteen”
John Inghram “The Gospel”
A Flying Fortress “Umami”
Neostra “Passage to the Eternal”
Todd Tamenend Clark “Dark Matter/Dark Energy”
Scrap Iron Pickers “Swamp Thing”
Rudy Panucci “Spring Piano Sketch”
Mel Larch “Fishtune”

I want to mention that it would have made perfect sense to include new music from Spencer Elliott in this show, but I put this show together last week, before his new CD was released, so we’ll have to play catch-up and bring you new music from Spencer over the coming weeks.

Radio Free Charleston can be heard Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, with replays Thursday at 2 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight and Sunday at 1 PM, exclusively on The AIR.

At 2 PM on Psychedelic Shack Nigel Pye checks in from Haversham Recording Institute with a 60-minute mixtape of groovy Psychedelic Rock. Our friend, the Hippie Gnome, Nigel Pye, has once again neglected to provide us with a playlist for this new episode, but he tells me that it opens with Blues Magoo, and that the rest of the show is filled with “really heavy, trippy stuff, man.”

Psychedelic Shack can be heard Tuesday’s at 2 PM, with replays Wednesday at 11 AM, Thursday at 5 PM and Saturday at 7 AM as well as the following Tuesday at 9 AM.

At 3 PM your PopCulteer returns to host a new hour of The Swing Shift as we continue to bring you the best Swing Music of the last century. This week we take that mission to heart and devote the entire show to the music of Glenn Miller, 115 years after his birth, and 75 years after his unfortunate passing.

You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 7 AM, Thursday at 7 PM and Saturday at 9 AM, only on The AIR. You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.

Remember, you can tune in to The AIR at all hours of the day and night for a variety and quality of programming that you will not find anywhere else. Check PopCult regularly for details on our new episodes.
