The AIR is in Holiday Mode all this week, and Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM you can listen to the all-new Radio Free Charleston 2020 Shut-in Show Christmas Special.
You can listen at The AIR website, or on the embedded radio player over in our right-hand column.
This is a three-hour show where your host, Rudy Panucci, and his wife, Mel Larch, talk about Christmas memories, how horrible 2020 has been, favorite Chrismas toys and other stuff, plus we play holiday music from Sierra Ferrell, The Dollyrots, Leslie Odom, Bob Dylan, and many more. There was no script, no rehearsal and we are accompanied by an extremely foul-mouthed talking plush. So be on alert that this show is definitely not safe for work.
It’s sort of like the Shut-in Shows that we did for a few weeks during the beginning of the pandemic, but without as much anger directed at our inept president.

You can hear The Radio Free Charleston 2020 Shut-in Show Christmas Special Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM, Wednesday at 3 PM, Thursday at 7 AM and 8 PM, Friday at Noon and 7 PM and several times Saturday and Sunday, as we turn our internet radio station over to celebrations of the holiday season all week long, until 3 PM, next Monday.
Because it’s a hell of a lot easier to schedule repeats through Christmas than it is to work all week.
We’ll still run our regularly-scheduled overnight marathons, though. Can’t upset our Swing Music and Showtunes fans.
Happy Holidays from The AIR.
