Tuesday on The AIR  we offer up a bit of a  patchwork edition of Radio Free Charleston. The fates conspired to rob me of my normal production time for the show on Monday, so I decided to punt, and re-present three hours of fantastic local music from five years ago in the form of three long-unheard episodes of Radio Free Charleston Volume Four.

We’re going back to October, 2018 to splice togther a show that’s jam-packed with three hours of great local stuff. 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 combination of RFC volume 4, episodes 90, 91 and 92.  Thats three consecutive episodes from the fall of 2018, which seems sort of like a lifetime ago, don’t it?

Due to time constraints, I can’t do the live links for this show, either. While this is a great collection of music, you’re only getting it because Monday was such a beeyotch.
