This week we bring back one of the most powerful musical episodes of Radio Free Charleston. From June, 2009, RFC’s 73rd episode, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie Shirt” was shot around downtown Charleston with street art in the background, and it featured music from OVADA and The Limbs. We also have a Plant Ro Duction Mini Movie.
In the background of this show, you will see part of the “Coming And Going” art installation by Mark Wolfe, and “Celebrate,” by Amy Williams with Chris Dutch. Mark’s work featured life-sized black-and-white photos of some of Charleston’s most notable people.
“Celebrate” was an evolution of Amy’s “Press 2 For Spanish” street work from 2008, expanded to include Italian and Arabic. You’ll see those peeking over my shoulder and around my back in the host segments for this edition of RFC.
The dynamic music comes from Ovada, a collection of great musicians from Parkersburg that included John Radcliff and the late Jospeh Hale, and also from The Limbs, a one-man-band from Denver. This episode is considered by many to be a high point from our first 100 episodes. You can read the original production notes HERE.
