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…

Astronomy!

This Sunday, we will present astronomy. I.e., songs titled for astronomical objects and phenomena, making for a rather interesting mix of styles.

See you in the Cavern,

011R The Doors, Remastered.

The Remastered Doors show went down well and felt a lot more entertaining to me. We worked in some of the post-Morrison Doors and a bit of the spoken-word album An American Prayer that Morrison had recorded before his death and the remaining Doors reunited to put music behind some seven years later. Some live stuff too.

151 When Hell Comes Home: The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper

A very successful show, despite (or was it because of?) the shock-rock nature of its subject, Alice Cooper. The show was assembled by Hugh, and I certainly learned a few things from it. Postshow was in memory of Ennio Morricone, and consisted of some of his movie scores.

014R The Doobie Brothers – Remastered

A happy audience danced and sang the night/day away with the Doobie Brothers, putting a smile on everyone’s face.

Once again, the playlist was considerably revised and updated from the original and the commentary was all new for this show. The icing on the cake was provided by the Doobies themselves, who had recorded a new version of Listen To The Music while in isolation and put it out on YouTube in support of feedingamerica.org – I’ve linked to the video below.

150 The Moody Blues

We had a very good audience for our 150th show, despite it being a holiday weekend for our US friends.  An excellent show, compiled by Hugh, saw us touch some of the highlights of a very long-lived group.  The preshow was full of live tracks, and the postshow had alternate takes and previously unreleased  tracks.

009R Vocalese and A Cappella Remastered

We had a good audience for our show, which went without a hitch this time. Although this was a Remastered show, I was never very happy with the original and did some substantial rework. I am much happier with the revised show, and I’m glad so many others appreciated it too. As promised, links to YouTube videos for Snarky Puppy and Camille Bertault are here, along with the spellings of the mediaeval titles.  Click on the titles for some other videos too.

The Free show was well attended, and our faithful listeners dealt well with the loss of signal, occasioned by a brief power cut affecting Ed’s area. It was a good show, too.

Free show!

Sunday from 1300 KI time, we will present a free show about Free. And I’ll forego the flurry of bad puns that immediately spring to my mind, to spare Alan’s feelings.

Free were a British Blues Rock group, famous mostly for just one particular song, but quite influential. Their disbanding led directly to the foundation of Bad Company.

008R Britprog 2 – Caravan

We had a minor technical glitch which meant that we started later than expected and the preshow was foreshortened. We had fifteen listeners at one point, which is a good number for us. Caravan are very English, and not everybody’s cup of tea.
