We begin with a look at the cutting-edge technology that allows us to pipe Radio Free Charleston into your homes.
Irish-born Anthony Hoey was living in Charleston seven years ago when I first met him and we planned to hook up so I could have him on RFC. Before that could happen Anthony moved to Columbus. Since then he’s spent time on the West Coast, in New York and in Dublin, Ireland before returning to Charleston just a few months ago.
We caught up with him at Third Eye Cabaret, which was being broadcast live on New Appalachia Radio–the home of Radio Free Charleston: Volume Three, and now seven years after we’d planned it, Anthony Hoey is finally on RFC with his song, “Parasites.”
You can go to the Diable Blues Band CD release party for “We never heard of you, either,” this coming Friday at 10 PM at The Blue Parrot, with an additional show December 7 at The Empty Glass.
Playing us out this week is The Company Stores, another hot Charleston band with a CD available. We recorded the band last June at FestivAll, in Davis Park. This is a band that we hope to record proper sometime, but this recording of their cover of “Billie Jean” is not too shabby. I like it better than the original.
