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 new show every other week, at 1300 KI time, with remastered versions of our shows from five years ago in the intermediate weeks. We have pre-show music usually starting 30 minutes earlier (so getting on the stream at 12:30 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…

190 Lost in 2021

Our now regular annual show celebrating those artists who left us in the past year.  A wide selection this year, which is both depressing and uplifting.  We also lost Grandbad from the cavern, and said goodby to him as well.

The show was compiled with input from Malaclypse, Hugh and Alan, and in the combination of our stashes we covered a wider variety than ever before.

A Bad Year for Good Music, remastered

This week’s offering is a remaster of our first show honouring those artists who we lost in the preceding year, covering 2016. With many of the artists featured, it seems almost like yesterday… yet they have been gone for good for over six years now.

189 The Sweet

A great show and an eye-opener for those who, like me, had never considered The Sweet outside of their Hit Single persona. There was quite a light hidden underneath that bushel.
The Big Hits were dealt with in the preshow, and the rest was solid gold.  And at least 27 listeners agreed, an extremely satisfying attendance for a holiday season show.

The Quieter Bits (by the Noisier Artists)

Just to calm things down a little for everybody among the hecticism of pre-Xmas, this week’s offering is a selection of the not-quite-so-noisy songs by artists normally known to be rather the opposite, so join us, lean back, and be aware that “quieter” is a relative term…

This will be our last show of the year, and we will be back on January 2nd.

See you in the Cavern,
