Christopher Cantwell is continuing his "radical agenda" radio show while he is being held at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
The 36-year-old faces felony charges for allegedly using tear gas at the torch-lit rally on UVA grounds.
Cantwell calls his show "Live from Seg!".
Jail superintendent Martin Kumer says Cantwell calls a friend who records his voice.
Kumer says the jail does not condone Cantwell's show, but free speech rights allow it as long as he isn't inciting violence or illegal action.
