This week’s Radio Free Charleston on New Appalachian Radio features a ton of great local music in our first hour, and then flashes back to 1990 for even more cool local stuff from the RFC Archives as we bring you the entire First Step local music sampler released orginally by Rock 105.
You can listen to Radio Free Charleston’s fun and exciting streaming radio incarnation at 10 AM and 10 PM on Tuesdays (and again at midnight Thursday) at New Appalachian Radio, part of Voices of Appalachia. If you miss it, check our the archives for previously-aired shows. You can also listen to Radio Free Charleston Saturday at Midnight. Saturday, RFC airs for six hours, starting at The Witching Hour!
