Tuesday is our most-listened-to day on The AIR as we bring you local music and other goodies like Swing and Psychedelica. This week all three of our music programs feature new episodes, and they’re all pretty darned nifty.  You can tune in at The AIR website, or listen in on this sweet little embedded radio player…

Today at 10 AM we are bringing a terrific new episode of Radio Free Charleston, opening with brand new music from Bon Air, and continuing with great stuff from our archives, including Holly and the Guy, Feast of Stephen, Stark Raven, Farnsworth and more. We’ll post the playlists at the bottom of this post, after the jump.

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

At 2 PM it’s time for Nigel Pye and his psychedelic mixtape program, Psychedelic Shack. This week we get the second new episode of Psychedelic Shack in its one-hour format, bringing you Nigel and his weekly hour of mind-blowing psychedelic music, presented as a nearly-hour-long digital mix. In this week’s show you’ll hear Donovan, Flaming Lips, Small Faces and more, and Nigel sent us a playlist this week, so you can see it below the jump.

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.

At 3 PM The Swing Shift celebrates its fiftieth episode with a one-hour blast of the host (that would be me) playing his all-time favorite Swing tunes from artists like Joe Jackson, Royal Crown Revue, Benny Goodman, Brian Setzer Orchestra and more. See the playlist below.

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.
