Radio Free D’ni

Covered Up… again!

This week’s offering is a slight remaster of the 63rd show from six years ago, presenting original tracks and some of their cover versions—focusing on either unusual originals, or unusual or storied covers. And in some cases, both.

See you in the Cavern,

195 The original Mahavishnu Orchestra

A great and very well attended show, and in keeping with our desire to bring you something new.  In some ways a precursor to jazz fusion, but the influence of this group was much wider than that.

Preshow.

Mahavishnu Orchestra

This week’s show will be concerned with the original Mahavishnu Orchestra (not the many later attempts are re-establishing the formula by founder John McLaughlin). Jazz turned up to 11, not something for the traditional Jazz lover, the band made more inroads with Rock audiences than elsewhere.

194 International Women’s Day 2022

We try to support special events in the Cavern as well as our regular shows, and IWD is one we’ve supported for the last six years.  This year, unfortunately, neither Ed nor Mal was available to mix the show, and so I had to present it solo, as I don’t have the equipment.  Old age does that to you…

I inherited 23 listeners from Podhopper’s show and still had 20 by the end of it – very pleasing, for a weekday show and at a late hour for European listeners.

No Fillers!

This week, we are presenting tracks from albums that contain absolutely no filler material—you know, the fluff bits to make an album out of a collection of three singles without costing the record company too much in studio time or songwriters’ royalties.

See you in the Cavern,

193 Traffic

An excellent show from Hugh about the band with three star names that managed to stay together, on and off, and produce some really great music along the way.  The preshow contained tracks from precursor bands The Spencer Davis Group (which contained Steve Winwood) and Deep Feeling (Jim Capaldi and Dave Mason), and some of the early psychedelic tracks from Traffic.
