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.

See you in the Cavern

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…

George Martin Remastered

This week’s show concerns itself with the Fifth Beatle. So, it’s about Stuart Sutcliffe. Er, Billy Preston. Er, Pete Best… well, it could be about over a hundred different people who have been called the “Fifth Beatle,” but George Martin arguably was with the Beatles the longest and had the most influence on their sound, so we are going to have a look at his work with—and without—the Fab Four.

200 A Classical Collection

A very fine and refined evening was had by all, as we ventured into the vast area of Classical Music for our 200th show. At one point we had forty-two listeners – a new record for us for a non-special-event show, beating our previous record for the Enya show, way back when.

199 Good Times, Bad Times

Second in an irregular series of “time” related shows, this one took its title from the Led Zep track and followed that theme, with bad times first, turning to good times to finish with.  Once again, a peak of 30 listeners came to the show, which was a good endorsement – we must be doing something right.

This week’s show is about the unexpected—in this case, instrumentals by bands not normally prone to recording them, or cases of them being so out of the normal playing grounds of the group as to make one sit up and listen.

198 Genesis: The Phil Collins Years

Part 2 of our coverage of the tremendously successful British band Genesis, covering the years after Peter Gabriel left and when Phil Collins took over as lead singer, and beyond that up to the present day.

The Myst Online server was down for the first part of the show, and our audience number suffered a little, but still peaked at 28, one of our better-attended shows, and an indication of just how popular this band still is.
