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…


Stevland Hardaway Morris

This week, we’ll take a good look at the prolific early 70s through 80s in the career of Little Stevie, a period during which he defined some of the parameters of both Funk and Disco, helped transform the way keyboards were used in Rock music and made a large contribution to the introduction of the synthesizer to the mainstream.

Yes, we’re talking about Stevie Wonder here.

Pat Metheny

This week’s show will look at just some of the work of Jazz guitar legend Pat Metheny (and his group).

See you in the Cavern,

236 Fire!

A show for broadcast on November 5th, which is Bonfire Night in the UK, when bonfires and fireworks are indulged in.   Having a theme of fire produced a very large number of candidate tracks, and they were reduced to one two-hour show with enough left over for another, so we’ll do this again.

Complete with exposition and explanation of the whole Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes thing including burning figures in effigy – no longer the Pope, we are relieved to say.

On the occasion of this year’s Guy Fawkes/Bonfire night, we will put on a show that’s on fire. Well, featuring songs about fire, fireworks, etc. Bring your safety goggles and dancing shoes!

Also please note that sanity has returned to most of the world in the form of standard time, so the show will be on at the usual 12:30 KI time for everybody again.

The Who, pt. 2

This week, we’ll have a look at the other bits The Who did, both as a band after Keith Moon’s death and as individuals.

And a reminder to our non-European listeners, DST is ending for the UK and EU this weekend, so the pre-show will begin around 13:30 this week.

See you in the Cavern,
