We have three hours of new RFC today on The AIR.  We have a new episode of  Radio Free Charleston,completely newly-recorded to make up for last week’s power-outage-induced compilation show.  To listen to The AIR, you simply have to point your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay here, and  listen to the cool embedded player found elsewhere on this page.  

You can hear Radio Free Charleston Tuesdays at 10 AM and 10 PM, with tons of replays throughout the week.

This week we have three hours of newly-assembled coolness with the first hour comprised entirely of recently-released music, including new local tracks from Emmalea Deal & The Hot Mess, Jim Lange, Unmanned, Massing, Sierra Ferrell and more, plus new Custard Flux from our Chicago pipeline, and new major artist releases from Pet Shop Boys, Sheryl Crow and The Anchoress. Plus we have a track from the latest House of Tabu release by Kitten & The Tonics.

Our second hour opens with a new local Rap track from Duck City Music, then veers into a lenghty set of Progressive Rock, and winds up with a couple of day-late Eclipse songs.

Our third hour digs into the RFC archives for some classic local tracks, and then winds up with Americana and New Wave tunes.

Consider it a three-hour tour with no danger of getting shipwrecked on an uncharted desert isle. Rudy don’t do boats, kids.

Links in the artist’s names below will take you to a website where you can find our more about them and maybe buy their music. Check out the playlist.
