Once again we have come to Tuesday on The AIR  and you know what that means. Today we deliver unto you a brand-new, three-hour  episode of Radio Free Charleston.  You simply have to poke 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 (If you’re reading PopCult on a desktop, that is. Phone readers have to go to the website).

We have a  killer new Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday.  This week we open with new music from a David Synn, with guest vocals by Matthew Fitzwater.  “Tattoo” is the title track of David’s upcoming EP. We also pay tribute to the late Mike Lyzinga with a couple of tracks from his band, Big Rock and The Candyass Mountain Boys,

The rest of the show is loaded with new independent music from Charleston, Chicago and The UK, plus some classic tracks and some of our usual off-the-wall rarities. The first hour has a set of country-fied music, while the second hour has a set of 1960s MOD tunes.

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