air-6-6-17All-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, The Swing Shift and Ska Madness debut Tuesday at 10 AM, 3 PM and 5 PM on The AIR.Listners will be able to hear a huge load of new local music, Broadway Swings part two and a tribute to the late King of Ska, Prince Buster.

You can tune in at The AIR Website, or just settle down right here on this embedded radio player…

We’re trying an experiment this week. If you want, you can listen to Radio Free Charleston on this widget, whenever you like…

At 10 AM and 10 PM Radio Free Charleston opens with a fresh-outta-the-oven track from Columbus’s Weedhaven Laughing Academy. The show continues with new music from Pale Nova, Scarlet Revolt and closes with a never-before heard new studio cut from Membrane Cell. See the playlist below.

At 3 PM The Swing Shift delivers the second part of Broadway Swings, which began last week on Curtain Call. You can hear that episode of Curtain Call at 2 PM, in a special replay. The playlist can be found at the bottom of this post.

At 5 PM Dexter Checkers checks in from London with Ska Madness, this week presenting an hour of the music of Prince Buster, the Ska pioneer who left this world last September.

At 6 PM our daily New Music Show continues, while at 6:30 PM, still by Popular Demand, it’s The Crazy Show. At 7 PM we offer up a replay of last week’s Radio Coolsville, and at 8 PM it’s a replay of last week’s Sydney’s Big Electric Cat.

10 PM is when Radio Free Charleston is heard again, followed at 11 PM by Radio Free Charleston International, and then that’s followed by an all-night marathon of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat at 1 AM.

The AIR is the place to go for interruption-free music. Below the jump you’ll find the playlists I promised you:
