Tuesday on The AIR  your blogger and radio show host once again dives into the vast RFC Archives and comes up with a “new” patchwork edition of Radio Free Charleston. Real-life intrusions combined with  PopCult Gift Guide  to wipe out the time I’d set aside to record new shows this week.

This week I decided to go back to June, 2018, and stitch together three consecutive episodes of Radio Free Charleston Volume 4, which happen to be loaded with great music. To hear all this cool 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 over at the top of the right column.

At 10 AM and 10 PM you can hear this all-local compilation of RFC volume 4, episodes 80, 81 and 82.   These are killer shows, and as a special treat, the second and third hours are made up entirely of music recorded for the RFC video show, so nobody else has these songs in their archives.

These shows haven’t been heard in more than two years, so I thought it was a good idea to bring them back and plop them into the RFC V5 rotation. I do apologize for not having live links for the bands in the playlist this week. Time constraints prevented it.

Check out the playlist:

Now you can 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.

The 2021 PopCult Gift Guide continues later on Tuesday.
