Tune in Monday evening, October 3rd, at 8 p.m. for the radio debut of the Charleston Time Machine. That’s right—here at the Charleston County Public Library, we have a new radio station, WYLA, 97.5 FM LP, and I’m committed to producing a weekly show dedicated to local history.
My first episode is a telling of the “Invasion of 1706,” and I’m already working on the next show. As a one-man operation, I’m working long hours to get this new venture started, but hopefully the process will become easier in the coming months.
For those of you who don’t live in the immediate Charleston area, WYLA will soon (we hope) have a permanent Internet location (that is, a dedicated URL). For the moment, however, you can find a live stream of WYLA content on YouTube. Just go to YouTube.com and perform a search for “WYLA live stream.” In the list of results from that search, click on the item that includes a red rectangle around the red text “Live Now.”
Once I’ve produced a few shows, I’ll then tackle the task of turning these audio recordings into podcasts that you can download and listen at your convenience. For the moment, however, I’m going to take this one step at a time!
