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…

Richard Thompson

On Sunday, we will present the career and works of English guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson, carefully leaving out his beginnings with Fairport Convention and concentrating on his solo career, which has taken a recent upswing after only fifty years in the music business…

020R Rock Humour Remastered

The 2016 Rock Humour show needed a bit of rejigging to avoid repeating tracks used the previous week, and the notes were  completely revamped.   Attendance was light, but there were a good number in the cavern and a fair amount of danceing got done.  And everybody was amused, for at least some of the time.

The preshow was mostly 10cc or Godley & Creme, after they had left 10cc.  The postshow was nearly all Bonzo Dog Band…  Both reliably amusing, and unlikely to be repeated any time soon.

019R Celebrations Remastered

The Remastered Celebrations show coincided fortuitously with the opening of the first new ages in Uru Live for 13 years, giving us a very good reason to celebrate. The remastering was minimal in terms of the content, changing just one track in the main show and adding more to the pre and postshow sets. The audience figures were very pleasing, up to 35 at one point, and an indication that some of the old hands and new arrivals brought in by the event came along to join us too.

Celebration!

Sunday from 1300 KI time we’ll have a bit of a celebration, so bring your good times and your laughter too: We gonna celebrate your party with you. In the Cavern, there is reason enough to celebrate with two new Ages (and a new library for all the new Ages to come) now available to explore, so while it is a lucky coincidence that our re-run of the Celebration show from 2015 just came up for broadcast this weekend, why not make the most of it?

See you in the Cavern,
