Rarities and What-Ifs, part VI

The next show will be yet another round of rare tracks (the Rarities bit) and tracks illustrating what lengths artist will go to to get things done (the What-ifs) in the face of opposing odds. As always, there will be some unexpected tracks in there, as well as some that might be expected, but with some unexpected history behind them.

Road Songs II: On the Road Again

On Sunday, we will have a second show of road songs–Alan is preparing a nice trip through the various genres and decades. And I can’t promise that any of the at least three songs called “On the Road Again” will actually be in there; I just figured it was a fitting epiphet for a second road songs show.

See you in the Cavern,

Electric Folk – the Unusual Suspects

To embark on our second half-century we will visit the world of Electric Folk, but eschew the usual suspects – such as Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and so on. There will be some tracks from lesser-known British bands, once I can decide which ones to pick from the short (Ha! What do you mean, short) list, a bit of Celtic rock including Galician, Breton, Irish and Gaelic, and Malaclypse will bring along some of his favourites from Germany.  I do believe I have some tracks from Sweden too.  Oh, and one or two from bands you’d not normally connect with the folk world at all.

Come and join us on the plaza on Sunday 4th September at 13 KI (that’s 1 pm US Mountain Time, or 8 pm UK time, 9 pm European time), or in Second Life visit TJ’s Dance Hall where Ainia DaFente will host the rebroadcast into SL.  Or just use the links at the top of the page to listen, but you’ll miss out on the text chat if you do 🙂

Second Anniversary

August 7th marks the second anniversary for Radio Free D’ni in the cavern.  As is traditional (well, as close as we can get to tradition) Ed is putting together a show containing his favourites from the past year’s shows.

The show starts at 13 KI (8pm UK, 9 pm Central European Time) (KI time is Mountain Time in the US) with preshow music for at least 30 minutes before so you can all find the channel.  Use the links at the top of the page, just underneath the site banner, to connect to the stream.

All three of us will be there, and Mal will bring some special beer for the occasion, I’ve no doubt.  That will be my excuse, anyway.  Join us, and help us celebrate 🙂


Connections I: The Clapton Complex

Our next show will be “Connections,” taking a look at how musicians, producers, songwriters etc. are interconnected behind the scenes and across the decades, with probably quite a few surprises in there. As a friend and former singer for one of my bands put it, “it’s all one cantankerous family…”

Update July 22, 2016: the playlist and notes are done, earlier than I expected, but what a trip through the history of Rock, and we got diverted into a few unexpected directions. I predict this is going to be a very interesting show!


Radio Free D’ni
Just to add some extra details:  show starts at 13 KI (8pm UK, 9 pm Central European Time) ( KI time is Mountain Time in the US) with preshow music for at least 30 minutes before so you can all find the channel.
It will start with a Rolling Stones track and progress from there. Eric Clapton does feature in a few places … Come and listen and all will be revealed 😀

Road Songs

Our next show will be Road Songs–songs about the road, the drive, the car, the way… there might be some surprises in there, and some expected bits. Join us in the Plaza as usual 🙂

The History of Pink Floyd, Part II

The History of Pink Floyd, Part II, is currently expected to be broadcast as our next show, on June 26th. As of now, this will include the development from Atom Heart Mother (1970) up to Wish You Were Here (1975), with some audio footage from the Live at Pompeii show, which was recorded live at Pompeii (d’oh!) in 1971, for French and German television, without a live audience.

See you in the Cavern,


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…
