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

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…


89 Cat Stevens

Broadcast on April 1st, which also happened to be Easter Sunday, our audience was smaller than usual, which we should have expected if we’d noticed the significance of the date in time.

Preshow contained two Pentangle tracks, one long one to start with so that people had plenty of opportunity to get the channel connected.

The postshow started with a live version of Peace Train, a song which he continues to sing to this day, and one of his most well known.

As promised, I’ve linked to a fansite page with the translation of the Latin lyrics of O Caritas, and include the Greek text, a translation and a transliteration for the Greek verse of Rubylove. Though Cat Stevens has Greek ancestry, he is a Londoner born and bred and lead a cosmopolitan life, He no doubt picked up some Greek from his father, and may have attended Greek Orthodox church with him.

Latin lyrics and translation by Michael R Valenzuela for O Caritas here, along with some notes

Rubylove lyrics in Greek, with a transliteration for those who don’t read Greek text (like me) and an English translation

Ruby γλυκιά
Έλα ξανά,
Έλα ξανά κοντά μου
Έλα πρωί, με την αυγή
Χρυσή σαν ηλιαχτίδα
Ruby μου μικρή

Ruby glikya
Ela xana,
Ela xana konta mou
Ela proi, me tin avgy
Xrisi san iliaktida
Ruby mou mikri

Sweet Ruby
Come by once more
Come once more close to me
Come by at dawn
Golden like a ray of sun
My little Ruby

88 Turn It Up 2 – Hook, Line and Sinker

A second dip into our stash of songs with compelling hooks, memorable music and something that makes you want to Turn It Up.

The show went down well, with an audience of 20 or so. Combining two different presenter’s choices of compelling tracks proved popular once again, and also gave a wide spread of music.

The stash mined for the preshow was Mal’s this time, some choices from compilation albums.

Turn it Up! 2–Hook, Line and Sinker

On the 18th of March, we will present our second selection of songs with great hooks–beginnings that make you want to turn it up! Europe switching to Daylight Saving at the end of the month, this show will start 1400 KI time instead of the usual 1300, i.e., an hour later than usual for Our American Cousins, same time as always for us Europeans, and we have no idea when the rest of the world decides to throw away a perfectly good hour of sleep, or whether they do so at all, so we’re not going to do a comprehensive, country-by-country listing here. There’s a Wiki for that…

See you in the Cavern,

87 Boys…

Another very satisfying show, with 15 listeners online during the preshow, rising to a maximum of 29. Preshow starts at M and moves on to P in my stash, and the postshow included alternative takes and tracks referred to in the main show.

The reason I mentioned that no frogs were harmed by the inclusion of Axel F, despite severe temptation was, as you may already know, due to the “Crazy Frog” adaption, a very annoying thing. Do not click on the link below.

86 Valentine’s Day

A fine romantic evening’s entertainment was shared with up to 29 listeners at one point.

Preshow from my stash again, some Little Feat, Swarbrick/Carthy, The Melrose Quartet with a fine piece of anti-war sentiment, composed by Carthy, and after that some Michael Chapman, with added Mick Ronson and Rick Kemp.

The show walked the listener through an affair, from first meeting to a Valentine, a slow dance, and a look at the future.

Postshow we had some of the tracks that just didn’t quite make the cut, from Bryan Ferry’s Slave To Love (another meet-up and falling in love song), Under The Boardwalk and Wouldn’t It Be Nice (getting to know each other) and some steamy stuff, Body Talk and Feel Like Makin’ Love. Finally, Paxton’s Outward Bound sees the couple heading off on a life’s voyage.

See you in the Cavern,

85 MOULa 8th Anniversary

For the 8th anniversary, we put together a program including soundtrack music from Uru and other Cyan games, some of the cavern’s favourite musicians, and from explorers who are also musicians. I have included links to the explorers band’s websites where known. We had record-breaking audience figures, due entirely to the assiduous advertising of the anniversary event by Minasunda, and also due to us following the opening ceremony, explorer memorial and NULP dance troupe events. We held on to the audience you gave us, guys, so I’m happy with that.
