It’s Tuesday on The AIR  and you know what that means. For the first time in a few weeks it’s time for yet another one-third-new, three-hour  episode of Radio Free Charleston. 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 elsewhere on this page.

It’s one more hybrid edition of Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week we open with a full hour of  local and independent music, and then we hit you with two hours of classic Radio Free Charleston International from the summer of 2016.

Our first hour, opens with new music from Three’s Company Blues.  You’ll also hear cool new music from Jaysin Christ and Bane Star and we have loads of great recent local tunes . We also have some new tunes from Chicago bands, Curious Grace & Black Rabbit and Cosmic Bull. Clarifying a note from the show, the new single from Curious Grace & Black Rabbit is available now.

The second and third hours of our show re-present a cool episode of Radio Free Charleston International from January, 2019, when your humble host veered off into several different half-assed mini-themes.

Check out the playlist below to see all the goodies we have in store (live links will take you to the artist’s pages where possible)…
