60 Playing The Game
Radio Free D’ni’s 60th show coincided with the 7th anniversary of MOULa’s revival, and in honour of that we had a selection inspired by playing the game – adventure games mostly, and the various Uru incarnations especially.
The preshow was selections from the end of the ‘D’ section and the start of ‘E’ from my CD stash. The Nightfly is on later than we are and has to deal with much wierder callers.

The postshow had some of the tracks that almost made it into the show. Rush’s Farewell to Kings is obvious, Places to Go is what we all have, the Cannonball is found in Teledahn (in the gun) and could also be the imitation stone of Sisyphus in the Path of the Shell. Several places could be a Temple of the Winds. Running on Three is what it feels like when you can’t quite solve a puzzle and Available Light is needed in Kadish Tolesa, in the moon room and the pyramid.
|A Farewell To Kings||Rush||A Farewell To Kings||1977|
|Places to Go||Tony Levin||Resonator||2006|
|Temple Of The Winds||Bill Bruford’s Earthworks||All Heaven Broke Loose||1991|
