thursday-7-20It’s time for our daily look at The AIR, our little internet radio station. We are still experiencing a surge in listenership.  We now have well over 4,000 weekly listening sessions.  For some reason people have suddenly decided to sample us. If you haven’t yet, you too can tune in and see what kind of radio adventures we’re up to on The AIR.

Tune in at the website, or on this swell embedded radio player…

Once again this week your PopCulteer is going to be dragging out some of the early episodes of Radio Free Charleston International that haven’t been heard for almost a year now. This gives our new listeners a chance to enjoy being exposed to the formative episodes of one of our flagship shows, which breaks all the rules of radio programming, and as a side benefit, it cuts down on my workload a little.

Thursday at 3 PM, with replays over the next week, you can hear the seventh episode of RFC International,dedicated to cover songs performed by the likes of Kate Bush, Ben Folds, Todd Rundgren, Adrian Belew and many more. I’ll put the playlist at the bottom of this post, below the jump.

The rest of the day we have replays of this week’s episodes of Curtain Call, The Swing Shift and Radio Free Charleston, as well as an all-new episode of The New Music Show, our beyond-cool music rotation show, which recently saw new tracks added by Pale Nova, The Company Stores, Liam Gallagher, Membrane Cell, Fitz and the Tantrums and more.

At 10 PM we present Mojomatic and others, recorded Live at the Empty Glass. At 1 AM it’s an all-night marathon of The Swing Shift, which is gaining popularity in France and Germany.

I’ve been plugging away at The AIR hard for over a year now. It’s cool to see it finally find an audience.
