Radio Free D’ni

Welcome to Radio Free D’ni!

Welcome to the homepage of Radio Free D’ni. You will find here both our current announcements and our past playlists. Our links to the music stream are at the top, just above this post.

Generally speaking, we present a new show every other week, at 1300 KI time, with remastered versions of our shows from five years ago in the intermediate weeks. We have pre-show music usually starting 30 minutes earlier (so getting on the stream at 12:30 KI time might be a good idea), and also a good bit of music after the show proper.

13:00 KI is 8 pm in the UK, 9 pm in CET. KI time is Mountain Time in the US, and it follows DST… I can only assume that when Victor Laxman got the KI’s working again he synch’d them to surface time in New Mexico…

Rarities and What-Ifs, part 8

This week, we will have an updated collection of bits that are not exactly regular radio fare, or that have an interesting bit of history behind them. As always, the selections will be quite varied.

242 MOULa 14th Anniversary

A show for the 14th anniversary of Myst Online: Uru Live again, taking the theme of Ivory, opal and Dahlias, and doing our best with as limited selection of tracks.  Even expanding it to include elephants didn’t help too much.  However, I just added a few favourite Myst-related tracks to the final part of the show, ones that were danceable, and it seemed to work quite well 🙂

Opals, Dahlias and Ivory

Also, the occasional Elephant, even if it’s not the one in the room. This week’s show will be themed on what marketing “experts” tell you to buy for a 14th anniversary. Well, for your loved one on the occasion of a 14th anniversary, anyway. The anniversary being celebrated being the one of the resurrection of MOULa.

116R Focus

A remastered show of Hugh’s, with some additions as the original was a little short.  The band’s heyday was in the Seventies, but they have kept going (with the occasional break) and we featured music from the full discography.   Topped out at 17 listeners, this time.

241 John Cale in the Seventies

A collection assembled by Hugh of the Welsh musician, composer and producer John Cale’s work during the Seventies.  This was the period after he’d left the Velvet Underground and made a number of solo albums, often dark, sometimes esperimental and discordant, always interesting.  The preshow was Cale tracks from the Velvet Underground, and the postshow tracks were producec by Cale in the Seventies.

John Cale

This week’s show takes a look at what John Cale did after he left The Velvet Underground—not only as a recording artist, but also as a producer and arranger.

113R Can

Krautrock pioneers, and wonderfully eccentric with it, Can or rather CAN from the Seventies, mostly, with a reunion in the late Eighties. A fascinating selection of music, never mainstream but always interesting, assembled by Hugh, who joined us for the show.

Can

This week, we’ll kick the present Can. The Krautrock band. Because we can. One of the big names in what the international music press has rubberstamped as “Krautrock” (because it was Krauts, rocking, it seems) but what is actually more of an eclectic branch of Progressive Rock made in Germany. Highly experimental and influenced by classical music, Can’s work was quite influential outside the group’s home country and is certainly worth a closer look.
