Tuesday on The AIR  your blogger and radio show host once again shirks his duties and delivers a patchwork edition of Radio Free Charleston. Preparations for the start of next week’s PopCult Gift Guide have devoured my time, so you get to revisit the recent past of 2019Since my gift guiderly duties are what pulled me away from producing a fresh show this week, I decided to go back to the final episode of RFC Volume Four, which also doubled as an entree in the 2019 PopCult Gift Guide. That makes up the first hour of this week’s show.

For our second and third hours, you get a swell vintage episode of RFC International, from around the same time. To hear all this wonderfulness you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to the cool embedded player over at the top of the right column.

At 10 AM and 10 PM you can hear this compilation of RFC volume 4, episode 125 and RFC International 072.   This year I probably won’t devote a show to the PopCult Gift Guide like I did back in 2019, but that’s because many local bands will be getting full-fledged entries in the guide this year. I’ll tell you more about The 2021 PopCult Gift Guide on Friday.

Now you can hear a different 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 MIRRORBALL at 1 PM, and NOISE BRIGADE at 2 PM. At 3 PM we have two recent episodes of The Swing Shift.

The PopCult Gift Guide starts Monday, but you should also expect an all-new three-hour RFC next week.
