SMOKIN' IN SUMMERVILLE

There's a new venue open in the Summerville area. Kingston's Cigar & Martini Bar – located in the newly-renovated spot at 1525 Old Trolley Road in Trolley Square (where the Krankee Yankee previously stood) – offers lunch and dinner daily with live music on the weekends. The venue is affiliated with the local Kingston Tobacco Company, a full-line tobacconist carrying handmade cigars, pipes, pipe tobacco, gift items, and related smoking accessories (see www.kingstontobaccoco.com for more). Local rock/Top 40 cover band The Cool kick off the Cigar & Martini Bar's first official weekend with a varied set of hits from '70s to the '90s on Fri. Dec. 1. Call 875-7444 for more.

ON THE DIAL I: GUTEN MORGEN

Veteran Charleston radio personality Morgen – host of the long-running morning show "Morgen in the Morning" – has left her gig at The Bridge 105.5 FM (an LM Communications-owned classic rock station) and stepped into two new slots at The Drive at 100.5 FM and Q104.5 FM (two Clear Channel-owned rock stations). The laid-back, music-laden, news 'n' traffic-heavy "Morgen in the Morning" ran for three years on the Bridge every weekday from 6-10 a.m. Fri. Nov. 17 was the last day for her at the station, where she worked as DJ and assistant program director (see www.thebridgeat1055.com). Listen for her on The Drive from 6-10 a.m. (a slot previously handled by a guy voice-tracking from Texas) every weekday and on Q104.5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every weekday as well. Check out more at www.q1045.com and www.thedrive1005.com.

ON THE DIAL II: XMAS HELL

It sounds like local Clear Channel oldies/disco/vintage Top 40 station Y102.5 FM ("Charleston's home for the greatest hits of all time") and Sunny 96.9 FM (a Citadel Broadcasting station) have switched to the "all-holiday music" format. There's bright green and red stuff at www.wxly.com and www.sunny969.com. Bah, humbug! And applesauce! –TBL
