rfci-4-20Thursday is usually when we drop a new Radio Free Charleston International on an unsuspecting public at 3 PM on The AIR.  But this week we’re dredging up our past on The AIR, a week before the anniversary of our re-branding. Tune in at the website, or on this handy embedded radio player…

We kick off Thursday with a replay of the first two episodes of Curtain Call at 7 AM. After that, get ready for three hours of Mr. Lee Harrah unleashed as we bring you his episode of Six Degrees of Separation at 9 AM, followed by an encore of the first-ever Harrah’s Hard & Heavy at 11 AM.

At noon we go back almost exactly one year for an encore of the debut episode of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. Legendary London DeeJay Sydney Fileen presents two hours of the best music of the New Wave era, and you can hear the very first episode here.

At 3 PM it’s time for a replay of the premiere edition of Radio Free Charleston International. This is the show wehre I get to play anything I wish, and this debut episode has been out of circulation for nearly a year.
