Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, your PopCulteer hosts the local music showcase, Radio Free Charleston. This week’s show Digs into the RFC Archives to bring you all the music from the legendary 5th Anniversary episode of the Radio Free Charleston video show.

Mostly shot over a single weekend in early July, 2011, this show brings you exclusive live performances from Mother Nang, Jeff Ellis with Sasha Colette, Andy Park and the Kountry Katz, HARRAH, Holy Cow, Linework, Remains Unnamed, The Stacee Lawson Band and more. Save for two songs, these are performances that you can only hear on Radio Free Charleston.

We always do our best to serve the local music scene here in Charleston, and Radio Free Charleston is the only radio show dedicated to all local music that has nearly thirty years under its belt. You can hear replays of this week’s episode Thursday at 3 PM, Friday at 8 PM and Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight.

Tuesday at 3 PM stick around for a new edition of The Swing Shift, where your RFC hosts shifts gears and brings you the best Swing Music of the last century. This week’s show includes the following music:
