Friends and fans of Richard “Box” Bachschmidt are invited to a celebration of his life on Sat. June 29, at the Tin Roof, starting at 5 p.m. To honor his memory, there will be local music playing and Tin Roof will be serving plenty of beer.

“Box” Bachschmidt was a popular radio personality on 105.5 The Bridge and 98 Rock for years. His radio show, Box in the Morning, had an energetic following and after leaving terrestrial radio, he started a streaming show. He was an avid supporter of the Charleston music scene and a friend to many musicians. He passed away on June 26, 2018.

He loved it all. He loved us all. Thank you for making us laugh, for loving us with your big heart, and for just being, so uniquely, you. You made a difference. We love you back and miss you so much.” [content-2]
