It’s another new-show Tuesday on The AIR as we deliver new episodes of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift to our loyal listeners. If you want to hear the magic, all you have to do is tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

It all kicks off at 10 AM (with a replay at 10 PM– all times EDT) with a brand-new edition of Radio Free Charleston. Now in its thirtieth year, RFC continues to bring you more local music than any other source.

This week RFC goes METAL for the whole hour. We open with Byzantine and continues with epic slabs of local metal from bands like Bobaflex, Karma To Burn, CHUM and Ghosts of Now, some of them exclusive to Radio Free Charleston.

Check out the playlist here:


Byzantine “Verses of Violence”
John Lancaster “A Penchant For Hell on Earth”
Bobaflex “A Real Sadness”
Karma To Burn “Thirty Eight”
Out of Nowhere “Take It Back”
Trielement “Accidental Chaos”
Zeroking “Black Friday”
CHUM “Six Feet of Earth”
Ghosts of Now “Deathburn”

Following the 10 AM debut of this episode, you can stick around and listen to three previously-aired shows, for a four-hour local music fix.

Radio Free Charleston can be heard Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, with replays Thursday at 2 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight and Sunday at 1 PM, exclusively on The AIR.

Psychedelic Shack remains in reruns this week. The Haversham Recording Institute crew were overwhelmed with extra production work last week, and we are hoping that they will return with new episodes of all their shows next week. Tuesday at 2 PM we revisit Nigel Pye’s trippy mixtape that begins with the Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles and Fripp.

Psychedelic Shack can be heard Tuesday’s at 2 PM, with replays Wednesday at 11 AM, Thursday at 5 PM and Saturday at 7 AM and the next Tuesday at 9 AM.

At 3 PM we have a brand-new, shiny edition of The Swing Shift that opens with a tune from The Gentleman’s Anti-Temperance League. Also in this show is another new track from Jack’s Cats, “Ain’t Gonna Be Blue,” which you can hear in this week’s new episode of Riverdale, which is also the final episode with Luke Perry, and you can see it Wednesday evening at 8 PM, on The CW.
