It’s a rare RFC premeire on a Thusday on The AIR  as we deliver unto you a brand-new episode of Radio Free Charleston, which really should have been ready two days ago for our normal timeslot, but wasn’t because of stuff.

But today at 2 PM you simply have to take your cursor over and point it 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 (If you’re reading PopCult on a desktop, that is. Phone readers have to go to the website) and you get three full hours of Radio Free Charleston loaded with cool new local music and cool new independent music and some really wild stuff from five decades ago, tossed in with a random flourish.

We have a  wild and eclectic new Radio Free Charleston at 2 PM Tuesday.  This week we open with a new song by The Settlement, and we also have new local tunes from Brian Diller, Foz Rotten, Aaron Fisher and Bane Star.

We also have some great tunes that come to us via our Chicago pipeline, as we debut tunes that are due for release later this week by Crandelion, Walcot, Red Spot Rhythm Section and Vincent Bruckert (of Crown Vic Royal fame).

In the course of our three hours we jump around many different musical genre and styles, because RFC is free-format radio, and we sorta do that by definition.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store (live links will take you to the artist’s pages)…

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Thursday at 2 PM on The AIR, with replays  Friday at 9 AM and 9 PM, Saturday at Noon and Midnight, and  Monday at 11 AM. This episode will also air in the regular RFC timeslots next week so that yours truly can vote and get his car out of the shop and go to his doctor. It’s going to be a busy day.

Now you can also 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. Whew! That’s a lot of stuff I just did here.
