101 Bill Bruford part 1

A very satisfying show, with more than 20 listeners all the way through, and a maximum of 27. A lot of old favourites in the set list, which no doubt helped. Hugh was able to join us on the stream too.
Preshow and postshow tracks were the ones that didn’t quite make the show cut, again, and all had Bruford on drums.

Radio Free D’ni @ 100

On the second of September, Radio Free D’ni will present its 100th show. Contrary to our usual policy, for this show we will air only #1 hits and tell the dirty secrets behind them–and we will keep the back channel open, so our audience can hear the dirty secrets that go on in the background during the making of our shows.

Allan Holdsworth in two parts

On July 8th and 22nd, we will present a retrospective of the late Allan Holdsworth’s career, which spanned notable acts such as Soft Machine and Gong as well as many high-profile collaborations. Most settled in Jazz, Holdsworth had a very distinctive guitar style remeniscent more of a saxophone player than a guitarist. And if you wonder what that would sound like, tune in!

94 Steely Dan part 2

Part 2 of the Steely Dan set.  More diversity here, dealing with the peregrinations of Becker and Fagen after the split of Steely Dan and their eventual revival.  Album production work and collaborations with other artists let us expand the coverage even wider.

A great show,not drawing a big audience to begin with but one that grew to 19 at one point. Several compliments received on social media and in the cavern afterwards, so I’m feeling a little better.
Preshow had some extras from China Crisis and Rosie Vela, who are both unfairly overlooked.

Postshow included the title track from Two Against Nature, which incorporates all the disturbing bits of voodoo, and Walter Becker’s This Moody Bastard, which is about as autobiographical as he ever got.
