From December, 2012 comes Radio Free Charleston 175, “Dunbar Lanes Shirt,” which was a sampler of just a tiny amount of the great local music that we brought you in that year. We revisited songs from Red Audio, In The Company of Wolves, Godmode Broadway, and The Charleston Light Opera Guild production of “The Color Purple.”

Host segments were shot at Joplin Park in South Charleston early on a Sunday morning, just moments before gloomy clouds and rain blew through.

We’d decided to do something with this episode that we hadn’t done since our very first year, and that meant taking a quick look back at some of the memorable performances that we’ve been lucky enough to have on our show in the calendar year, 2012. Of course, with us re-presenting these shows every week, now it’s more like the best of the previous seven months. But still, it’s a great batch of terrific local music, so enjoy.

Next week it’s Christmas in March.
