We go back to late September, 2012 for Radio Free Charleston 169, “The Black Knight Rises,” which featured music from Emily Burdette, Godmode Broadway and The Nanker Phelge, plus two short films by Frank Panucci.

This episode ws hosted from The Mound in South Charleston as a bit of a preview of the very first ShockaCon.

This episode leads with the first of two shorts by Frank Panucci. “A Guide To International Road Signs” is a classic, award-winning educational short made by Frank way back in 1990, before the fall of the Berlin Refrigerator and the collapse of the Potrzebie regime in Eastern Europe. We also get a new LAX animation, which includes a subtle subliminal advertisement.

Our first musical guest this week was Emily Burdette, a talented singer/songwriter, and a filmmaker to boot. On this episode we were proud to bring you her debut music video, “Fall Air.” This video was directed by Curtis Baskerville, and shot in Lewisburg, West Virginia. A few weeks after this episode, RFC presented a music video by Amanda Brigette, directed by Emily.

Godmode Broadway made their debut on RFC earlier 2012, and burned brightly, if only for a short time, as one of the coolest bands in town. We recorded Godmode Broaday at The Blue Parrot, and they treat us to their song, “Origins.”

Our final guests on this episode of the show were our old friends, The Nanker Phelge, and they play us out with a song recorded on Christmas Eve, 2010 at The Empty Glass, “Killer Took a Holiday.”
