CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The first "Radio Free Charleston" of 2013, "Sock 'em Who-Bots" is online now at the PopCult blog at blogs.wvgazette.com. Host segments were recorded at The Dale Morton Mascot and Costume Studio in Hurricane.
Musical guests are Frenchy and The Punk, Flare Baroshi and Johnny C and The Scurvy Dogs. The episode also includes a short film by K.D. Lett and opens with an exclusive trailer for the MTV series "Buckwild," with footage you won't see anywhere else.
Both Frenchy and The Punk and Flare Baroshi are making their returns to the show. Frenchy has a performance of "The Confession of Jack Bonnie and Sally Clyde," recorded late last year at The Empty Glass, and Flare has the music video for her song, "Phoenix," co-directed by Elizabeth McCormick and Joscelyn Atkinson.
"RFC" also has local filmmaker/photographer K.D. Lett's short film, "Snow," which he created out of multiple exposures taken of the Charleston Ballet during a performance of "The Nutcracker."
Wrapping up the show is Charleston's wildest '80s cover band, Johnny C and The Scurvy Dogs, with a tender and heartfelt cover of The Go-Go's "We Got The Beat."
