Lowcountry Local First is a Charleston nonprofit that answers the question, “How do I support local businesses?” Through advocacy and education events and a super handy local business directory, Lowcountry Local First promotes the idea that local ownership is the cornerstone of a healthy Charleston economy. LLF Development manager Steve Fletcher has his own Ohm Radio show, “Steve’s New Music Guide,” so it was a no brainer to ask him to supply City Paper with a rundown of his favorite tracks at the moment.
