For the third week in a row we are giving you BRAND-NEW episodes of all of our afternoon music programs! Once again we’re bringing you Monday and Tuesday’s schedule together this week so that you can have plenty of time to prepare meals with which you can enjoy the fine programming on our internet radio station, The AIR. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
We have our usual excellent line up of shows on Monday, headlined by a brand-new editions of Harrah’s Hard & Heavy at 2 PM and the triumphant return of Herman Linte on Prognosis at 3 PM. Then after that we expect a new episode of Marking Out with Betty Rock and Matt BelVillain discussing professional wrestling. Marking Out can be heard at 5 PM Monday, with replays Wednesday and Sunday.
Monday Harrah’s Hard & Heavy brings you a full hour of legendary band, Motorheard, covering songs made famous by other artists.
Immediately following that, Herman Linte and Prognosis present two hours of Triumverat, a German prog band from the 1970s that should give any fan of ELP the warm and fuzzies.
Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM we offer up a brand new episode of Radio Free Charleston. This week it’s all about reviving classic local tracks from our massive RFC Archives as we go back to one of the original episodes of Radio Free Charleston from November, 1989, and bring you an in-studio performance by The Blind Blue Leper Society, along with other highlights of that show. The BBLS was none other than our old pals, Joe Vallina (currently of The Heavy Editors) and Charleston icon, Washboard Dave.
The morning airing is followed by three more hours of fantastic local music as we bring you three recent episodes of Radio Free Charleston. The night-time airing is followed by last week’s brand-new Radio Free Charleston International.
Tuesday at 2 PM Dexter Checkers checks in from London with a special episode of Ska Madness dedicated to The Toasters, a band that bridges the gap between British Two-Tone and American Third Wave Ska.
At 3 PM your PopCulteer hosts The Swing Shift. This new episode will bring you classic examples of Big Band Swing, mixed with Swing Revival music from the 1990s and brand-new Swing tunes from Maureen and the Mercury 5, The Swing Shift Big Band, Louis Prima Jr., Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Lady J and her Bada Bing Band and more.
Check out the neato-keen schedule graphic for The AIR which I sort of recycled from last week.
