Thursday brings you a new episode of one of our most popular shows on The AIR, plus two episodes of shows that debuted Tuesday, when PopCult had gone out askew on treddle.  We have replays of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift, and then it’s a brand-new edition of Prognosis, our guide to Progressive Rock, that you can tune in at the website, or on this nifty little player…

While PopCult was cut off from the rest of the world Tuesday, we debuted a great new episode of Radio Free Charleston that opened with a vintage Rockabilly-era single from The Eddie Harris Trio. We also had tons of other great stuff, and you can see the playlist after the jump at the bottom of this post. The reston for that is that this show will be replayed Thursday at 2 PM, so you can tune in and hear what all the buzz was about.  You can also hear Radio Free Charleston Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 11 AM and Midnight and Sunday at 5 PM.

Thursday at 3 PM yours truly hosts two hours of a fantastic mix of new and classic progressive rock on Prognosis. This week the plan is to open with Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, but as we write this, there is something weird going on with The AIR. I’m posting the playlist below, but you might hear a different episode instead. Prognosis can be heard every Thursday at 3 PM, with replays Friday at 7 AM, Saturday at 8 AM, Tuesday at 8 PM and Wednesday at 10 PM, exclusively on The AIR.

At 7 PM you can catch this week’s edition of The Swing Shift, which opens with Lee Presson and The Nails doing a Swing cover of a Van Halen tune, and after that it gets a little weird (see the playlist after the jump). Following The Swing Shift, at 8 PM, we replay Mel Larch’s salute to Aretha Franklin on Curtain Call.

Check out this week’s playlists so you can pretend-deejay at home!
