Tribute to the Fallen of 2017

Our show on Sunday, January 7th will be a tribute to those great musicians who left us during the last year. Not all of them were well-known, but they all have had a huge impact on the music we hear today. A sad occasion, but we will be celebrating their music.

See you in the Cavern,

Announcement – Show 82 – Un-Covered

On Sunday 10th December, Radio Free D’ni will broadcast a show entitled Un-Covered, consisting of sets of tracks that have the same title but that are otherwise completely different. Initially we thought there would be few candidates, but as we dug into this we found lots, and Sundays show will just contain a few of them. Artists featured on Sunday will include AC/DC, Roxy Music, Joni Mitchell, Steve Winwood and David Bowie.

Join us at 8pm UK time (13 KI), Sunday 12th November, on Radio Free D’ni.

In game we will be on the public plaza or in Second Life visit TJ’s Dance Hall where Ainia DaFente will host the rebroadcast into SL.

Next show – 81 By The Book, Chapter 2

On Sunday 26th there will be a second show by Radio Free D’ni with a theme of By The Book. With stunning originality I have called it Chapter 2. Tracks will all have literary connections, some stronger than others. We’ve collected a lot of material and there will be a substantial postshow.

Xenipher’s Race will take place immediately before the show, in MOULa, and our preshow music will thus be the music for the race, which I can’t tell you about because it’s secret 🙂 But it will start at 1200 KI.

Unusually, I will be broadcasting the Xenipher’s race music and Ed will take over the stream at about five minutes before the show start at 1300 KI (8 pm UK time). We have managed a handover without dropping the stream before now, but if we mess it up, you may have to reconnect to the stream, or restart your music player.

This will be a mixed set, there will be less of the fast and noisy stuff. Apart from bits of Iron Maiden, Hawkwind and Abney Park that is. Some Steve Hackett, Gentle Giant and Mike Oldfield too. A varied collection, as usual.

Join us at 8pm UK time (13 KI), Sunday 12th November, on Radio Free D’ni.

By The Book: Chapter II

Sunday, 26th of November, we will present our second show of songs inspired by literature. The selections are diverse in style, so we feel everybody will find something they do not like… and vice versa.

See you in the Cavern,

80 Biting The Hand That Feeds You

Coming up next Sunday, 12th November, from Radio Free D’ni, Biting The Hand That Feeds You, a set of tracks by naughty artists who are fed up with the music business getting in the way of their creativity and, basically, tell then to go away, go very far away, and in a painful manner. Surprisingly, all of the artists continued to be successful, which must have annoyed the moguls no end. We have examples from The Who, Dire Straits, Joni Mitchell, The Kinks and of course Pink Floyd.

See you on Sunday, when you can use the links at the top of the page to listen in.

Turn it Up!

Sunday, October 29th we will present a show of songs that have a hook that makes you turn up the volume. In selecting tracks, we were going for recognisability of the opening as well fingersnappability of the track. There may be a few surprises in there…

Remember that Europe goes off daylight saving that day, so for our American cousins, the show will be an hour later than usual.

See you in the Cavern,

Lazy Days

Sunday, October 15 we will present Lazy Days, a show of slow songs to relax after the rather hectic few shows of the last couple of months. Music to hang out by, relax, and enjoy.

Show 77 – A History of Pink Floyd, part III

On October 1st we will be broadcasting the third part of our History of Pink Floyd, compiled by Malaclypse, and covering the most complex period of their career, beginning from 1975, as Wish You Were Here was the last album we covered in part 2. There will be a Part 4 to complete the tale, at a later date.

I hope you will come and join us at 8pm UK time (13 KI), Sunday 1st October, on Radio Free D’ni.


Diamonds and Ice: The 75th Show

Sunday September 3rd we are going to celebrate our 75th outing with a show themed on diamonds and ice. Expect diversity! As usual, the show starts 1300 KI time, but pre-show will begin about half an hour earlier.
