Friday we wrap up NEW FALL SEASON week on The AIR, West Virginia’s for-reals, no kiddin’, most-listened-to internet radio station as of this writing. All week long we have featured brand-new episodes of our most popular shows! Friday is no exception as we present new episodes of Radio Coolsville and The Third Shift and celebrate the return of the legendary Sydney Fileen and Sydney’s Big Electric Cat after many months away. Check it out at the website, or on this nifty embedded radio player…
After our Friday morning encores of this week’s new episodes of Radio Free Charleston International, Word Association with Lee & Rudy, Marking Out and Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle we dip into the AIR music rotation for some early-afternoon tunes and then at 2 PM, it’s time for a brand-new episode of Radio Coolsville, with DJ Betty Rock. We’ve got a fresh batch of Radio Coolsville, which comes to us from our friends at WMUL (as does Marking Out) and we think it’s the perfect lead-in for Sydney’s Big Electric Cat.
At 3 PM Sydney Fileen returns to the AIRwaves with her first brand-new episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat in several months. Haversham Recording Institute has been overwhelmed in recent months by what we in the industry call “paying work,” but we finally have the team back in full force and Sydney hasn’t missed a beat. This week’s show is filled with sets of music that show off some fun wordplay, and we’ve been told that next week’s episode, which is number 25, will bring a special treat.
Not that this week’s show is anything less than spectacular. Check out the playlist…
