Radio Free Charleston

Our own local webshow, born out of PopCult, is scheduled to be featured in Charleston Newspaper’s “Outlook on the Arts” supplement to the Sunday Gazette-Mail this weekend.We’re very excited by this and hope that it helps raise awareness of Radio Free Charleston in the area as we approach our 200th episode.

In a quick interview with Douglas Imbrogno, I talk about some of our highlights and give some hints to what the future holds for our humble little video journal of the local music, arts and film scenes. Many thanks to Doug for including us in this year’s guide to the arts scene in Charleston.

Because a lot of first-time viewers may be coming to visit PopCult Sunday, we will be posting some of our best episodes all day long. That means that we will skip the RFC Flashback on Saturday. Its place will be filled by a load of Toy News in advance of the American International Toy Fair, which starts Sunday in New York.

We also plan to drop a new RFC MINI SHOW on Monday. It’s busy times here at Stately Radio Free Charleston Manor. Be sure to run out and buy a copy or three of the Sunday Gazette-Mail so you can see us in the Outlook supplement.

Valentine’s Art

1782062_10203046191220963_2080223250_nArt Emporium will present Ian Bode’s “A Couple’s Affair Valentine’s Mini Show” today, with Ian on hand from 11:00 AM to 1 PM, and again from 3 PM to 6 PM. This was rescheduled from yesterday, when nasty winter weather cancelled everything from art shows to RFC tapings.

Featured in the show are new paintings inspired by Valentine’s Day, love, hearts, love of hearts, those who have loved with their hearts and the town of Chuckburgh. Ian will also be making 4″ x 4″ and 6″ x 6″ The Passenger style couples caricatures on the spot. Ian will be doing Valentine caricatures from 11 AM to 1 PM and 3PM to 6PM today at Art Emporium on Quarrier Street.


The stage play opens tonight at The Alban Arts Center. Watch this, then go.



A Streetcar Named Desire

More fine theater to occupy your Valentine’s Day, this time at The WVSU Capitol Center Theater.



Comedy at Four Brothers in St. Albans

No cover, good food and coffee and tea. What more could you want? The show starts at 8 PM.



Music to Warm Your Heart at The Empty Glass

Marium Bria and Matt McGuire team up to bring a Valentine’s vibe to The Empty Glass at 9 PM with an opening set by Kristen Costello and Bobby Altmann.
