Radio Free D'ni

Welcome to Radio Free D’ni!

Welcome to the homepage of Radio Free D’ni. You will find here both our current announcements and our past playlists. Our links to the music stream are at the top, just above this post.

Generally speaking, we present a show every other week, at 1300 KI time. We have pre-show music usually starting 40 minutes earlier (so getting on the stream at 12:20 KI time might be a good idea), and also a good bit of music after the show proper.

See you in the Cavern

13:00 KI is 8 pm in the UK, 9 pm in CET. KI time is Mountain Time in the US, and it follows DST… I can only assume that when Victor Laxman got the KI’s working again he synch’d them to surface time in New Mexico…

78 Lazy Days I

A change of pace with this set, as we gave you a show of slower numbers, but not without some excitement.

Preshow was once again from my stash (now into the J’s of this pass through one section – there are three more once I’ve finished this one) and picking slower tracks again, from Jethro Tull, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Giuffre.  The postshow was made up of tracks that didn’t make the cut for the show, because we’d used them before perhaps, or did not fit into the storyline I’d assembled.

Once again, we had 30 listeners at peak, which is very satisfying.  Of course, we would always like more 🙂

Lazy Days

Sunday, October 15 we will present Lazy Days, a show of slow songs to relax after the rather hectic few shows of the last couple of months. Music to hang out by, relax, and enjoy.

See you in the Cavern,

77 A History of Pink Floyd, part III

Part 3 of a four-part series.  This show covered the period from 1975 to 1979 including the albums Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall.  A turbulent period in the band’s history.  Preshow and postshow both contained tracks from the Live at Pompeii movie, as well as some of Roger Waters’ solo album Radio K.A.O.S.

On October 1st we will be broadcasting the third part of our History of Pink Floyd, compiled by Malaclypse, and covering the most complex period of their career, beginning from 1975, as Wish You Were Here was the last album we covered in part 2. There will be a Part 4 to complete the tale, at a later date.

I hope you will come and join us at 8pm UK time (13 KI), Sunday 1st October, on Radio Free D’ni.

 

76: Let’s Eat – Breakfast

Something close to all our hearts (well, just below in fact), food, and being the first of several, this one’s about breakfast. In the preshow we had Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast (I wanted to get that out of the way early) followed by some stuff from the H section of the stash, Hayseed Dixie and Huey Lewis.

The breakfast theme included Cyril Tawney’s Chicken on a Raft, a made-up sea shanty – Cyril served on diesel submarines – and includes some Royal Navy slang – a short glossary is included below

Chicken on a Raft = Fried Egg on fried bread
Jimmy = Jimmy-the-One = 1st lieutenant
Comic Cuts = A sailor’s personal file, record of service, misdemeanors etc.
Dabtoes = seamen (not specialist ratings), used the Foreward Mess
Dustmen = Engine Room specialist ratings (originally stokers), used the Aft Mess
middle, forenoon = watches
Whalin’ crew = Whaler’s Crew / Whaler = Ship’s boat
pusser = purser
DonnyB: Donnybristle in Fifeshire, not far from Rosyth dockyard

The postshow included some alternate takes (my, we are getting good at this) on songs from the show, plus a couple of ones that didn’t quite make it.

75 : Diamonds and Ice

The 75th show made use of the wedding-anniversary convention and had a theme of diamonds – which had to be augmented by ice (the slang term for diamonds, we are lead to believe).  A very wide-ranging selection was the result of combing all our stash for suitable candidates.  In the end we had enough to cover the pre- and post-show requirements as well.
