A Bad Year for Good Music pt. IV

This Sunday it is all about George Martin, legendary producer and studio boss, who died in 2016. One of the most successful producers ever, with #1 hits through three consecutive decades (one of only three producers to have managed that), he had a long career, famously producing The Beatles in the 1960s, among many others.

Unexpected Instrumentals

On May 14th, we will present Unexpected Instrumentals, being a selection of instrumental pieces by bands which are not renowned for doing them, or which are so different from what the bands are known for that it really is quite unexpected. Might be a few surprises in there 🙂

66 Songs That Get Under Your Skin

Our theme for the next show (Sunday 30th April) will be Songs That Get Under Your Skin.  A personal choice from each of us here on Radio Free D’ni of songs that we find have affected us deeply, and in unexpected ways.

For my part, there could be something from Rush, The Albion Band, Fairport Convention, Sade, Amazing Blondel, John D Loudermilk and Alex Glasgow.  Come along and hear the tracks that get to us…

A Bad Year for Good Music pt. III

This time, we will have a look at the career of the late violinist extraordinaire Dave Swarbrick, best known for his work with Fairport Convention, but also quite active outside that group.

Covered Up II

This Sunday we will present our second round of original songs and cover versions thereof which are either unusal, have a bit of a story to them, or both. We did receive some criticism about our last show on this theme, but also enough positive feedback that we think it’s a viable concept, especially since this is not just original and almost identical cover, but rather the more diverse bits.

Because of the time difference caused by North America switching to Daylight Saving Time earlier than most of the rest of the world, this show will air from 1400 KI time, which will be 2000 UK and 2100 MET, so for our European listeners, it will be the usual time and an hour later than usual to our North American listeners.

No-Filler Albums

On March 5th, we will present a selection of tracks from albums that have no filler on them. Those albums are both rarer, and more frequent than might be expected: some of the “usual suspects” not having produced a single such album, whereas there are quite a few largely unknown artists who have almost made a hobby out of making them, despite never breaking into the upper end of the charts.

One-Hit Wonders

As per request of a couple of shows ago, Sunday’s show will be featuring various one-hit wonders, complete with the usual background info on them. And possibly a few surprises in there, though we did try not to include too many novelty songs, which alsmost by definition end up making their artists one-hit wonders, if they make it into the charts at all.

Connections II: The Edmunds Empire

Our upcoming show will be our second set of tracks exploring the interconnectedness of the music world, this time centered on Dave Edmunds, who has been quite a busy person and accordingly has had a pretty wide circle of collaborators over the years, quite apart from his solo career.

A Bad Year for Good Music

Over the year 2016, an unusually large number of great musicians have passed on. This show will try to commemorate them, and point out why they were important to today’s music. Hint: much of today’s pop and Rock music would not exist had it not been for them…

Not Your Average Christmas Music

Coming on Radio Free D’ni: Not your average Christmas music show.

There may be a steamroller, from Mannheim, no less. A little Wassail, something from Canada, France and Yorkshire. Something Glorious from Vivaldi. And a blythesome turkey. How can you miss that?

Never a dull moment. All rights reserved, may contain nuts. Thinking about it, almost certain to contain nuts. But very entertaining ones…

Come and join us on the plaza on Sunday 11th December at 13 KI (that’s 1 pm US Mountain Time, or 8 pm UK time, 9 pm European time), or in Second Life visit TJ’s Dance Hall where Ainia DaFente will host the rebroadcast into SL. Or just use the links at the top of the page to listen, but you’ll miss out on the text chat on the plaza if you do.
