Radio Free Charleston is the only regularly-scheduled showcase for local music, and has been around the Charleston area in some form or another since 1989. Now supporting the local scene on The AIR, RFC brings you local, original music from new artists, established artists, and from our archives, which stretch back over fifty years.
You will hear rock, hip hop, jazz fusion, progressive rock, folk, Americana, classical, avante-garde and experimental music by people with ties to Charleston and the surrounding areas.
Running from 9 AM Tuesday to 9 AM Wednesday morning, this is your chance to sample some of the vibrant, diverse and exciting music that Charleston has to offer.
It would be impossible to list every song we play for all 24 hours of the marathon, but you will hear local favorites like The Company Stores, Qiet, HARRAH, Jeff Ellis, Todd Burge, Pepper Fandango, Spencer Elliott,and more. We’ll also bring you music from Charleston natives who have moved on to other areas like Ann Magnuson, Michael Cerveris, and Deni Bonet. Plus we’ll dig into the archives for tunes from Mother Nang, Go Van Gogh, Hasil Adkinks, The Amazing Delores, Stark Raven and more incredible blasts from the past.
The video incarnation of Radio Free Charleston is gearing up for a relaunch after a year-long hiatus, but the radio show has never stopped. Today’s your chance to tune in and support the local scene.
