73 Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11

Preshow was a selection from the G section of the stash, plus Hayseed Dixie to set the scene for the show. Postshow was stuff that didn’t quite make the grade for the show, plus a repeat of The Eagles’ Get Over It for AyaHawkeye who had the stream drop out for her during that track. 30 top, 26 most of the time.

Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11!

On the 6th, at the usual time, we will present a second set of humour in Rock. EdisonRex is not currently available to do the Voodoo bits for us, so Alan will be handling the Microphone all by himself, but Malaclypse and Root Beer will be in the plaza for moral support and to possibly answer questions.

See you in the Cavern,

72 Gentle Giant

We were without Edison for this show, as he was having some well-earned time off.  The show was presented by me, AlanDJ, and I nearly always remembered to shut my mic off between announcements…

We got up to 20 listeners at one point, which was better than expected given that it is the first weekend of the British school holidays and the US folks have been on holiday for a while.  Thanks for listening, as always, and mention us to your friends…

Given that I was doing the broadcast all on my tod, I started the preshow early and also went on a bit longer with the postshow, moving on to game soundtrack music and then a ‘Fire’ theme.

71 No More Fillers Any More

A fine time was had with our No More Fillers Any More show on Sunday 9th July.

Preshow is still from the G section, and the postshow was the Big Hits from the albums we had featured in the show.

Fewer tracks in this show as more of them were longish album tracks, and grouped in pairs.

15 listeners max, 13 for most of the time.

The next show will be a light frolic through the 10-year career of odball prog rockers Gentle Giant.

70: Girls…

Radio Free D’ni’s 70th show played to a good audience on the plaza and on the air. We had a busy night with 24 tracks in the show, most of them being 3-minute singles, and all on the theme of girls names. We had some response to our call for requests, and more came in during the show, so we’ll keep those for next time. You can still contact us via the website, or in the game, and let us know of a track you would like – if we have it, we will try to play it.

The next show of this type will concentrate on boys names, of which there are somewhat fewer examples but still plenty around.

The preshow had some more tracks from the G section of my stash – Genesis and Gerry Mulligan. Postshow was some of the tracks that almost made it into the show.

22 listeners max, 17 average. I blame the summer holidays.

The History of Creedence Clearwater Revival

As announced earlier, on Sunday we will present the history of CCR, from their beginning to the band’s untimely end. In the pre- and post-show bits there will be some rare live takes by the band, and solo material by John Fogerty. One of the shortest careers of any major Rock band, during their five years of existence, CCR have helped create the genre of modern Hard Rock, as well as their very own style, which was later titled Swamp Rock and given its epitaph by Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd with their song “Swamp Music,” commemorating the disbanding of CCR a year earlier. Did you ever wonder how such a successful band could go down the drain so quickly? Listen in and you’ll find out 🙂

See you in the Cavern,
