Your PopCulteer is taking another week off from producing a new episode of Radio Free Charleston. However, the reason is just to make way for part of the special programming all this week on The AIR.  In the past I have gone overboard with Halloween video and audio content for PopCult and The AIR and I have no problem warming up those cold dishes for the next five or six days.

I realize that it’s sort of like spooning out spaghetti into kid’s trick or treat bags, but it’s all I can muster.

On The AIR, Halloween kicked off with last night’s marathon, but you can still tune in at The Website, or on the spooky little embedded player elsewhere on this page. All week long we’ll present Halloween episdoes of our music specialty programs, and all weekend long we’ll toss in concerts, radio dramas, comedy programming and more.

Starting at 7 PM Friday and running until Tuesday morning, we’ll dig back into The AIR Archives for special Halloween programming that includes Scary episodes of Prognosis, Sydney’s Big Electric Cat, Curtain Call, and Radio Free Charleston, plus some classic radio drama and a three-hour special of music inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, plus all sorts of other spooky holiday treats. .

This includes a chance to hear Orson Welles’ The War of the Worlds as well as the entire final Halloween concert by Oingo Boingo, from 1995. We’ll sneak in a few other new compilations of Halloween music and radio plays throughout the weekend.

Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM you’ll get to hear an episode of Radio Free Charleston V5 from two years ago.  After a new first hour, the show includes the entire Count Rudolf and Igor episode of Radio Free Charleston International that was ad-libbed under the influence of Benadryl back in 2016.
