I don’t really want to turn PopCult into a blog where I just complain non-stop about having Myasthenia Gravis, but I had a pretty bad weekend dealing with my chronic auto-immune disorder, so Tuesday on The AIR  I once again play Dr. Frankenstein and stitch together an episode of Radio Free Charleston volume 4 and Radio Free Charleston International to make a brand-new three hour episode of RFC V5. Both of the original shows are from 2016, and neither has been heard by anyone for over five years.

It’s an interesting artifact, and it’s still jam-packed with three hours of great local and non-local music. You simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and  listen to the cool embedded player that you can find elsewhere on this page.

At 10 AM and 10 PM you can hear this compilation of RFC volume 4, episode 6 and RFC International episode 24. Instead of just running these shows back to back, I interwove them to seem more like the current format of the show and recorded a new intro explaining what’s going on.  Some of the announcing may seem a bit choppy as I excised irrelevant bits to slash four hours down to three. You may hear some references to shows that are no longer on The AIR.  Both shows were loaded with good music, and I think my monster of a playlist is pretty impressive now that, it’s alive….ALIVE!

Ironically, the episode of RFC volume 4 that I feature here has me taking it easy because my voice was shot. Further proof that, even when I’m not feeling well, I’ll still endeavor to bring you a new (ish) show each week.

Since I’m having such a bad time with MG that I’m recycling entire paragraphs from the last time I had to do this there are no links to the artist’s websites below. Feel free to use the Google, or search this blog, if you really, really want to find out more about the music on the show.

Just check out this playlist…
