Tuesday on The AIR we deliver brand-new episodes of Radio Free Charleston, NOISE BRIGADE and The Swing Shift plus we replay last Friday’s MIRRORBALL special. While you keep practicing safe behavior and stay home as much as possible, you can still support the local scene here on The AIR.  You simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to this excitable little embedded radio player…

We have yet another three-hour Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week it’s another show jam-packed with great music from Charleston and the whole world.  This week we open with music from Matt Mullins and the Bringdowns and bring you a brand-new tune from Dennis DeYoung that that contains words he never used when he was in Styx . It’s three all-new hours with tons of surprises.
