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.

The old links still work as well

or http://www.urutunes.com and choose Radio Free D’ni…
Or you can plug http://aegura.harriman4.com:8000/stream.mp3 into your audio player

MOUL folks can meet us on the plaza and exchange text chat with Ed, Mal and me

56 Difficult Times

This Sunday, November 27th, the show theme will be Difficult Times – this is entirely due to an internet gif that a friend of mine posted.

Yes, there will be instances of each of the above.  As you might expect, some of them are a bit prog-ish, but there’s also a good helping of hard rock, jazz, and maybe some heavy metal, if I can get it assembled.  The sheets of armour are OK, but all the bolts seem to have a left-hand thread.

Covered up!

On November 13th, our next show will be along the lines of cover versions and their respective originals, with a focus on unusual or unexpected combinations or unexpected originals–i.e., cases where the actual original version has been mostly forgotten due to later cover versions being far more popular, or where the band doing the cover version would not usually have been expected to do so… or where the circumstances surrounding both (or more) versions are somewhat weird. And that is without even taking into consideration really weird cover versions of otherwise “straight” originals, some of which may also pop up in there.

By The Book

On Sunday, October 30th, we will have a show of songs referencing literature in various ways (the show we were supposed to have on the 16th–sorry about that!). There will be some pretty obvious connections, and some obscure ones, some mainstream songs, and a few quite a way off the beaten path. In other words, just another Radio Free D’ni show.

Due to the switch from Daylight Saving time in Europe, the show will be an hour late for our North/South American (and probably some other) listeners! 1400 KI time instead of the usual 1300.

No show on Sunday October 16!

On Sunday, October 16, 2016 we will not be having a show. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unfortunately unable to broadcast on this date.

We will be back with a show on October 30th, though, and it’ll be a good one 🙂

Rarities and What-Ifs, part VI

The next show will be yet another round of rare tracks (the Rarities bit) and tracks illustrating what lengths artist will go to to get things done (the What-ifs) in the face of opposing odds. As always, there will be some unexpected tracks in there, as well as some that might be expected, but with some unexpected history behind them.

Road Songs II: On the Road Again

On Sunday, we will have a second show of road songs–Alan is preparing a nice trip through the various genres and decades. And I can’t promise that any of the at least three songs called “On the Road Again” will actually be in there; I just figured it was a fitting epiphet for a second road songs show.
