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

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…

186 Robert Wyatt

A lovely set confirming our commitment to bring you something different, out of the multiple stashes and overlapping preferences of our contributors. Robert Wyatt has a very rich catalog to draw from, covering a much wider range than almost anybody else. We did our best to hit the high points, and more than twenty of you agreed with us.

056R Difficult Times Remastered

A show from five years ago, and at a point when we were getting really pretty good at doing this.  Dialog tightened up and the show trimmed for length, cutting two Dave Brubeck tracks.  We had a lot of those already.    Our first broadcast of the show had 20 listeners, and we broke that with 21 this time – a nice milestone

Here’s the playlist, and a link to the lyrics for Rush’s Losing It, as requested earlier (click on the track title)

Preshow

Unsquare Dance is possibly the second most famous Dave Brubeck track after Take Five. Klaus Doldinger’s Timesignature is the sleeper here – it is in common time, but has the relevant title…

Postshow

Aretha’s version of Say A Little Prayer is the second best, after the Dionne Warwick original.

Unsquare Dance is possibly the second most famous Dave Brubeck track after Take Five.

Vix 9 is by Bela Fleck and the Wooten brothers, Victor on bass and Roy “Futureman” Wooten on drumitar, his own drum controller made in roughly the shape of a guitar.   Bela Fleck is playing an electric banjo and synth pedals, and the live video of them playing this on Youtube is very impressive to watch.

I Say A Little Prayer Franklin, Aretha The Very Best Of Vol.1 1994 4/4, 10/4, 11/4
Unsquare Dance The Dave Brubeck Quartet Time Further Out 1961 7/8
Caesar’s Palace Blues UK Danger Money 1979 5/4

Experience Gentle Giant In A Glass House 1973 9/8
Modern Love Peter Gabriel Car (Remaster) 1977 11/8, 4/4
Night Illusion Gong Gazeuse! 1976 13/8, 17/8

Difficult Times, remastered

This week’s remastered show will be our first look at unusual time signatures, excluding the cheap 3/4 time. We will have something in almost every odd time signature from 2/4 all the way up to 19/16 changing to 7/4, and the title of that track will mislead many to believe it is by a different band and featuring an opener in 13/4 played over 4/4… but that is for another show on the same theme to resolve.

All Hallow’s Eve/Samhain

This Sunday, our show will co-incide with the festivities of the doors to the Otherworld opening, so we’ll be doing some stuff fitting the mood—also, the NULP Dancers will be spooking around during the show, so stay on your toes.

That might also be a good idea for everybody concerning the time of the show, since Europe is switching off DST this weekend, so we’ll be on 13:30 KI time this week.

See you in the Cavern,
