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…

76: Let’s Eat – Breakfast

Something close to all our hearts (well, just below in fact), food, and being the first of several, this one’s about breakfast. In the preshow we had Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast (I wanted to get that out of the way early) followed by some stuff from the H section of the stash, Hayseed Dixie and Huey Lewis.

The breakfast theme included Cyril Tawney’s Chicken on a Raft, a made-up sea shanty – Cyril served on diesel submarines – and includes some Royal Navy slang – a short glossary is included below

Chicken on a Raft = Fried Egg on fried bread
Jimmy = Jimmy-the-One = 1st lieutenant
Comic Cuts = A sailor’s personal file, record of service, misdemeanors etc.
Dabtoes = seamen (not specialist ratings), used the Foreward Mess
Dustmen = Engine Room specialist ratings (originally stokers), used the Aft Mess
middle, forenoon = watches
Whalin’ crew = Whaler’s Crew / Whaler = Ship’s boat
pusser = purser
DonnyB: Donnybristle in Fifeshire, not far from Rosyth dockyard

The postshow included some alternate takes (my, we are getting good at this) on songs from the show, plus a couple of ones that didn’t quite make it.

75 : Diamonds and Ice

The 75th show made use of the wedding-anniversary convention and had a theme of diamonds – which had to be augmented by ice (the slang term for diamonds, we are lead to believe).  A very wide-ranging selection was the result of combing all our stash for suitable candidates.  In the end we had enough to cover the pre- and post-show requirements as well.

See you in the Cavern,

73 Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11

Preshow was a selection from the G section of the stash, plus Hayseed Dixie to set the scene for the show. Postshow was stuff that didn’t quite make the grade for the show, plus a repeat of The Eagles’ Get Over It for AyaHawkeye who had the stream drop out for her during that track. 30 top, 26 most of the time.

Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11!

On the 6th, at the usual time, we will present a second set of humour in Rock. EdisonRex is not currently available to do the Voodoo bits for us, so Alan will be handling the Microphone all by himself, but Malaclypse and Root Beer will be in the plaza for moral support and to possibly answer questions.

See you in the Cavern,
Malaclypse

72 Gentle Giant

We were without Edison for this show, as he was having some well-earned time off.  The show was presented by me, AlanDJ, and I nearly always remembered to shut my mic off between announcements…

We got up to 20 listeners at one point, which was better than expected given that it is the first weekend of the British school holidays and the US folks have been on holiday for a while.  Thanks for listening, as always, and mention us to your friends…

Given that I was doing the broadcast all on my tod, I started the preshow early and also went on a bit longer with the postshow, moving on to game soundtrack music and then a ‘Fire’ theme.
