It’s Tuesday on The AIR  and that means it’s Radio Free Charleston time, and we’re back on track with another new three-hour episode of Radio Free Charleston. 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 found elsewhere on this page.

We have three full hours of music, much of it new, local and not, at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.   This week our latest Radio Free Charleston has killer new tunes from Nice Moter, The Leather Pockets, Sheyna Gee, J.Marinelli, David Synn, The Paranoid Style, The Proclaimers, The Godfathers, Ringo Starr and more.  Most of the entire first hour of the show is newly-released music, and the classic cuts sprinkled througout the other two hours are absolute gems.

Plus my voice was rapidly failing as I was announcing the show. See if you can tell!

Throughout the show we continue our mix of local, independent and major-label artists, just to keep you on your toes.  This week we have sets that veer a little proggy, a little ska, a little metal. All kinds of music are welcome here on RFC.

We also have new tunes from some Chicago friends, and our second hour opens with a track from the drummer for an obscure musical combo from the North of England.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store. Live links for local and indie artists will take you to the artist’s page…
