We have an epic new three-hour RFC today on The AIR.  We’ve got a load of new music in the RFC cupboard, and plenty of goodies from the RFC Achives. To listen to The AIR, you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay here, and  listen to the cool embedded player found elsewhere on this page.  

You can hear Radio Free Charleston Tuesdays at 10 AM and 10 PM, with tons of replays throughout the week.

We open our show with a new song from Mediogres, a preview of their upcoming album, “How Long Do We Have To Stick Around This Hen House.”  After that we have new music from Brian Diller, Jim Lange, The Anchoress, Sean Richardson, Brian Eno, Sierra Ferrell, John Bunkley, Masser Chups and more.

Our first hour has a set of New Wave-era classics, while the second hour brings you a set of Surf music and a long newly-released cut from The Settlement.

Hour three kicks off with Ohio’s Broken Relics, who make their Charleston debut this Friday at Sam’s Uptown Cafe. Then we launch into a mixtape of Radio Free Charleston archive tracks from  1985 to 2010, or thereabouts. Some of these are from the original broadcast version of RFC, while others are from our video archives.

Links in the artist’s names in the playlist below will take you to a website where you can find our more about them and maybe buy their music, if they have a website, that is.

Check out the playlist.

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR, with replays Wednesday at 9 AM,  Thursday at 2 PM, Friday at 9 AM, Saturday at Noon and Midnight,  and  Monday at 11 AM, exclusively on The AIR. Now you can also hear a different classic episode of RFC every weekday at 5 PM, and we bring you a marathon all night long Saturday night/Sunday morning.

I’m also going to  embed a low-fi, mono version of this show right in this post, right here so you can listen on demand.


After RFC, stick around for encores of last week’s episodes of  MIRRORBALL at 1 PM and Curtain Call at 2 PM.

At 3 PM, instead of the promised new episode, we give you an encore of two recent episodes of The Swing Shift. The plan was to produce a new show this week, but Myasthenia Gravis has slowed your blogger/radio host down, and I was not able to get it finished in time for the Tuesday airing.  Next week I will be sure to start on it early enough to get a new show ready for you.

 You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 8 AM, Friday at 10 AM and 8 PM and Saturday afternoon, only on The AIR . You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.
