Even with my Myasthenia Gravis in full-bloom, I forced myself to produce three full hours of RFC Tuesday on The AIR , Despite the heat, and with the help of much air conditioning, your humble blogger and radio show host was able to crank out a three-hour, new full-length Radio Free Charleston.
Three full hours of great local, new and independent music is nothing to sniff at. To hear all this cool 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 over at the top of the right column.
At 10 AM and 10 PM you can hear 180 minutes of great music, some new, some old, some from all around the world and some of it local, exclusively on The AIR.
The three hours of RFC contain some all-new goodness filled with newly-released local stuff from Bane Star, Brian Diller, Sierra Ferrell and more, plus we dig into the archives for some pretty bizarre stuff from all around the world.
It’s about the juxtapozin’, ya know?
This week we’re just dropping in links for the local artists. Your host is not exactly at 100% yet. But this is one cool show. One minor corrrection here, in the show I say the new pre-order LP from The Paranoid Style is on colored vinyl, but I was mistaken. It’s still way cool, though.

You can hear this episode of Radio Free Charleston Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM on The AIR, with replays Wednesday at 9 AM, Thursday at 3 PM, Friday at 9 AM, Saturday at Noon and Midnight, and Monday at 11 AM, exclusively on The AIR. Now you can also hear a different episode of RFC every weekday at 5 PM, and we bring you a marathon all night long Saturday night/Sunday morning.
I’m also going to embed a low-fi, mono version of this show right in this post, right here so you can listen on demand.
After RFC, stick around for encores of MIRRORBALL at 1 PM, and Ska Madness at 2 PM. At 3 PM we have two recent episodes of The Swing Shift. If all goes according to plan, we’ll have new episodes of Curtain Call, The Comedy Vault and Beatles Blast Wednesday, and a new edition of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat at the end of the week.
