I intended to record new episodes of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift this week, but late-summer allergies intervened and robbed me of my normal voice, so we’ll delay those episodes for a week and bring you encore shows, instead. Luckily, these are top-rated repeat episodes which would have won several awards already, had I bothered to enter them into any competitions.

Once again The AIR will be in reruns for the next couple of days. You can still listen to the wonderfulness of truly independent radio at The AIR website, or on this embedded radio player…

Lucky for you, we have the best reruns in the world, and that includes four recent editions of Radio Free Charleston, which are guaranteeed to brighten your day. You can hear them at 10 AM, with one lucky epsidoe being heard again at 10 PM3PM will bring you three great recent episodes of The Swing Shift. Because your PopCulteer plans to take some serious cough medicine, we’re going to go ahead and schedule reruns for this week’s Curtain Call on Wednesday, too.

I promise that I’ll have a really teriffic new episode of RFC International on Thursday, and Sydney Fileen will be heard Friday with both parts of her special Big Electric Cat devoted to new music by the legends of the New Wave era.

Later today we’ll bring you a big photo essay (which may have to be split into two parts) from the Queen City Beautiful Doll show that we attended in Cinncinnati last Saturday.
