Tuesday on The AIR we deliver brand-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, and NOISE BRIGADE plus a new episode of The Swing Shift that we’ll tell you about in a separate post this afternoon. While you practice safe behavior and stay home, you can still support the local scene here on The AIR.  You simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this excitable little embedded radio player…

We have yet another three-hour Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week it’s another show jam-packed with great music from Charleston and the whole world.  This week we open with music from The BrotherSisters and bring you a brand-new tune from Jay Parade that will also turn up on NOISE BRIGADE. We’re all-new in the first hour, then we bring you two hours of a classic Radio Free Charleston International that hasn’t been heard since 2016. We even left in the out-of-date station tags so you can have some fun with that.

Check out the playlist to see all the goodies we bring you this week…
