The RFC Flashback: Episode 176

It’s Christmas in March, as we go back to December, 2012, for our big Christmas extravaganza. Radio Free Charleston 176 was our 2012 Christmas Special. Filmed at and named after the Marx Toy Museum, this show featured music from the Charleston Gay Mens Chorale, a duet from Lee Harrah and Pepper Fandango, a special “double trio” from the cast of MARY: A Rock Opera, and Prank Monkey. Also in this episode, we have the Ghost of Animation Past, a holiday message from Razor Sharp Studios and Burt Fleming, and a quick musical tour of The Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville, WV.

The host segments for this episode were recorded at The Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville, WV before it closed down, and then found fame on American Pickers. It’s still closed, but Francis Turner usually reopens the Museum during the Marx Toy Convention in nearby Wheeling. We hope to get the chance to visit again this June.

For now, sit back and let this Christmas special put you in the mood for Easter! You can find the original production notes HERE.
