Our theme on Radio Free Charleston at New Appalachian Radio this week is ‘Out Like A Lion.” In our second hour we are going to give you an onslaught of hard-rock and heavy metal with enough f-bombs in the lyrics to sink a dozen low-powered FM stations.
You can hear this episode now in the Voices of Appalachia Archives HERE.
Part of our second hour is a five-song mini-theme-within-a-theme featuring local metal vocal legend (and RFC production assistant), Lee Harrah. We have five songs sung by Lee with five different bands.
You can listen to Radio Free Charleston’s streaming radio incarnation at 10 AM and 10 PM on Tuesdays (and again at midnight Thursday) at New Appalachian Radio, part of Voices of Appalachia. If you miss it, check our the archives for previously-aired shows. You can also listen to Radio Free Charleston Saturday at Midnight. Saturday, RFC airs for six hours, starting at The Witching Hour!
