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…

249 Let There Be Drums

An idea that surfaced after listening to Joni Mitchell’s “The Jungle Line”, Malaclypse took it and wrote a theme to it and between us we put together a great set of tracks.  Lots of dancing in the cavern, but fortunately no roof collapses.

The video link for the original drum track, recorded by the Ocora label, a branch of Radio France, in Burundi by recording engineer Michel Vuylsteke, is below.

120R John Wetton 1

Mother’s Day in the US, which may have accounted for a slightly smaller audience than usual.  But those in attendence were enthusiastic and full of puns…  not that that’s particularly relevant.     One of my favourite shows too.

John Wetton, part 1

This week’s show will illustrate the band career of John Wetton, including his stints in such insignificant acts as Family, King Crimson, Uriah Heep and UK. Be ready for bass and baritone, left-handed.

Weather Report

On Sunday, there is a high probability of Jazz Fusion, with showers of instrumental brilliance, drizzles of saxophone and keyboards as well as drum patterns and storms of applause.
