Even with a holiday-shortened week we are giving you BRAND-NEW episodes of many of our fine original programs! This week we’re bringing you Tuesday and Wednesday’s schedule together so that you can have plenty of time to arrange your life so that 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…
Tuesday at 10 AM and 10 PM it’s a new Radio Free Charleston that opens with a track from “Rancho Extreme,” the new album by Aaron Fisher. You can order “Rancho Extreme” from his website and enjoy the whole thing for yourself! It’s top-notch, original music.
After we hear from Aaron, this week’s RFC opens up a time capsule from 1989. We play the entire “First Step” local music sampler cassette that was put together by Steve and Tana Lister.
You’ll get to hear tunes from Brian Diller and the Ride, Big Money, Territories and more. We wrap up the show with a couple of ore recent classics. We’ll post the full playlist for RFC at the end of this post.
At 3 PM it’s time for a new installment of The Swing Shift. Our weekly primer in all things Swing opens with Louis Jordan performing “I Want You To Be My Baby,” and it begins a bit of a musical journey as we will feature different artists covering that song on at least our next four episodes…maybe more. Our new hour of Swing Music also includes tunes from Stan Kenton, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer, Fats Waller and more. Look for this playlist below, too.
Wednesday we expect a new episode of Life Speaks to Michele Zirkle at 1:30 PM, and then at 3 PM on Curtain Call, Mel Larch opens up the show with “Almost Like Praying,” the benefit song composed by Hamilton‘s Lin Manuel Miranda to benefit Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief. The rest of Curtain Call runs the gamut of musical theater with tunes from Spamalot, In Transit, Guys and Dolls, Fun Home, Come From Away, Jersey Boys and more.
At 10 PM you can catch the latest from the world of professional wrestling, as Betty Rock and Matt BelVillain brung us a new episode of Marking Out.
And now, here are the playlists we promised you…
