Your Radio Free Charleston host is back in town after a trip to Atlanta for GI Joe and Walking Dead fun, and inspired by his trip, this week’s episode of Radio Free Charleston’s streaming show on New Appalachian Radio is going to get out of town.
You can hear this episode now in the Voices of Appalachia Archives HERE.
By that, I mean that this week our show is going to focus on bands who are not based in our hometown of Charleston, West Virginia. We have license to roam all over the Appalachian Region, and we intend to exploit and abuse it in this special two-hour theme show.
You can listen to Radio Free Charleston’s streaming radio incarnation at 10 AM and 10 PM on Tuesdays (and again at midnight Thursday) at New Appalachian Radio, part of Voices of Appalachia. If you miss it, check our the archives for previously-aired shows. You can also listen to Radio Free Charleston Saturday at Midnight. Saturday, RFC airs for six hours, starting at The Witching Hour!
All of our music will come from artists who are from the Appalachian Region, or perform in the Appalachian Region on a regular basis. Some are a mere stone’s throw away, in Huntington, Morgantown or Parkersburg, others may be as far-flung as New York State, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina or where ever else that little Appalachian reference map we use extends.
Kicking off this week’s show are friends of ours from Georgia, Radio Cult, whom you may have seen on this week’s RFC MINI SHOW.
