It’s time for two “mixtape shows Tuesday on The AIR so listeners can enjoy new episodes of Radio Free Charleston and The Swing Shift without having to listen to so much of me talking. All you have to do is tune in at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
RFC hits at 10 AM (with a replay at 10 PM– all times EDT) with a brand-new edition of the show. Now in its thirtieth year, Radio Free Charleston continues to bring you more local music than any other source.
This week RFC digs into the archives for the entire show, opening with a 27-year-old track co-produced by yours truly, and continuing, mixtape-fashion, with music from local legends like Hasil Adkins, Go Van Gogh, The Pistol Whippers, The Carpenter Ants, Punk Jazz and more. You’ll even hear a piece of music composed and performed by your PopCulteer himself.
Check out the playlist here:
Three Bodies “Gardens of Hope”
600 Lbs of Sin “TJ’s Song”

Psychedelic Shack remains in reruns this week. Tuesday at 2 PM we revisit Nigel Pye’s trippy mixtape that begins with some really trippy music by Roger Glover. Psychedelic Shack can be heard Tuesday’s at 2 PM, with replays Wednesday at 11 AM, Thursday at 5 PM and Saturday at 7 AM and the next Tuesday at 9 AM.
At 3 PM we have a special new, shiny edition of The Swing Shift that presents songs about New York City, in honor of your PopCulteer’s recent trip to The Big Apple. You can read about that trip when I start posting installments of the NYC Tour Diary later today. This mixtape might make a good soundtrack for the posts coming your way this week.
During this week’s show you will hear Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and more, all singing the praises of the five bouroughs.
You can hear The Swing Shift Tuesday at 3 PM, with replays Wednesday at 7 AM, Thursday at 7 PM and Saturday at 9 AM, only on The AIR. You can also hear all-night marathons, seven hours each, starting at Midnight Thursday and Sunday evenings.
Remember, you can tune in to The AIR at all hours of the day and night for a variety and quality of programming that you will not find anywhere else. Check PopCult regularly for details on our new episodes.
