april-6-logoOur spring clean of the schedule of The AIR continues as we welcome back DJ Betty Rock and Radio Coolsville, and Sydney Fileen with her Big Electric Cat. You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just settle down right here on this embedded radio player…

You may have noticed that, with our new schedule on The AIR, we now have three hours of specialty music programming every weekday, starting at 3 PM. Friday, as before, is where you’ll find the debut of new episodes of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat at 3 PM. Sydney is back after an extended absence due to illness (and the occasional terrorist attack, as she says), with two hours of the best music of the New Wave era, courtesy of Haverhsam Recording Institute in London, England.  Check the playlist for this week’s show at the bottom of this post, on the other side of the jump.

Joining Sydney on Friday afternoons, we are proud to welcome back DJ Betty Rock and Radio Coolsville. DJ Betty’s show, which originates out of WMUL in Huntington, has shrunk down to an hour, but is still chock-full of the coolest Alternative-inflected music you’ll find. Going forward, Radio Coolsville will debut a new episode every Friday at 5 PM, with replays throughout the week. We are thrilled to have new episodes of Radio Coolsville back on our line-up.

At 6 PM tonight, it’s another half-hour of The New Music Show, and at 6:30 PM we bring you The Crazy Show. At 7 PM, this week, we’re bringing you a special replay of Radio Coolsville, and at 8 PM we start The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy over with the first hour.

9 PM sees a full hour of The Third Shift with Jay and Jared. Check this show our for the wildest conversations about beer, babes, gadgetry and the latest news from the world of the key demographic. At 10 PM we offer up a replay of this week’s Radio Free Charleston International, which opens with new music from the late Chuck Berry. Midnight ushers in an overnight mix of mystery music. Legend has it that you may hear entire albums, from start to finish, just like back in the old days of “Album Rock” radio.
