While The 2019 PopCult Gift Guide is in full swing (posts begin Tuesday after noon), we’ve also got a full slate of our specialty music programs today on The AIR. One of them even ties in to a Gift Guide suggestion.

Tuesday on The AIR we deliver new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, Psychedelic Shack and The Swing Shift to our loyal listeners. You may point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this happy little 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.

A very special Radio Free Charleston opens with a new track from Ann Magnuson, which you will read more about later today in the Gift Guide. It wraps up with two rare live tracks from Tyler Childers, recorded at The Empty Glass. In between we have our usual impressive selection of great local music.
