It is time once again for Radio Free Charleston, streaming at New Appalachian Radio. This week our two-hour audio extravaganza kicks off with solid hour of great local music as usual.
You can hear this episode now in the Voices of Appalachia Archives HERE.
You can listen to Radio Free Charleston’s fun and exciting 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!
Our second-hour theme this week is our first attempt at doing a “Rock Family Tree,” this time focusing on one of the hottest bands from the original RFC, Go Van Gogh. Stephen and Mark Bckner and Tim and Johnny Rock made up this four-piece, and you may have seen them in action a few weeks back on The RFC MINI SHOW.
In addition to bringing you some Go Van Gogh classics, we’re going to check out music from the pre-Go Van Gogh and post-Go Van Gogh bands that feature the brothers Beckner and Rock, and we’re going to catch up with solo material by The Beckners and tunes from their current band, The Nanker Phelge. That’s in hour two.
