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
Malaclypse

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…

Steven Sondheim

Sunday from 13:30 KI time (because of daylight saving time reverting to regular in Europe, but not yet in the U.S.), we will present the music of Steven Sondheim.

157 Going Dutch

Our look at Prog Rock in the Netherlands in the seventies turned out to be very popular, and deservedly so, as Hugh’s friend Martin Lewis put a great show together for us.  24 listeners at one point, and over 20 for the whole show.

Focus were covered in the preshow, to give other bands more time in the main show.  The postshow was all German rock, from the 2005 collection Krautrock.

023R A History of Rush part 1 Remastered

The remastered version of the Rush show is the first of our early shows for which there still exists a comprehensive set of notes.  We tended to play it by ear to begin with.  The show also needed little updating from its earlier form, which was a bit of a blessing.

The History of Rush, pt. 1 (remastered)

On Sunday, we will re-run our History of Canadian Prog Rockers Rush, arguably a Supergroup in all but name. In our series of re-broadcasts of our early shows, this is one that has only very few changes in it to reflect what has happened since the original broadcast, so if you want to find out what RFD was like six years ago, here’s your chance!

156 – Singing Together – multi-part vocal harmony in rock and pop

A gratifyingly popular show, with more than 20 in the audience for a good part of the show. Hint taken, we will work on onother one.

I enjoyed putting this one together, as there are moments in my favourite songs when the harmony comes together with overwhelming effect.  It was nice to be able to share it.

022R Prog Folk Remastered

Here was a show that I was most dissatisfied with when originally broadcast, and which had the most negative feedback.  That stuck with me, and I was determined to make it better.  Only you, the audience, can tell us that, of course.

Most of the content is new, and the notes were completely reworked.  Circumstances led to the show not being edited down, and all three sections were longer than usual – but nobody complained.  Malaclypse had some problems with his brand-new audio hardware, but the show was not off the air for more than a few seconds, and the thrashing about behind the scenes was not apparant.  We hope.  After a slow start, with nobody in the cavern, the audience built up to 17.  Are you all in the Fan Age tours when we begin?
