From the Library: The “Classical” Music Bin

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 15 April, 2010

An old staple of most music stores was “The Classical Music Bin”, a bin of miscellaneous albums, then cassettes, then CDs from the Renaissance through Modern Classical periods.  Everything was lumped together under the term “Classical” and dumped in a jumble into one space in which customers could dig for rarities and bargains.  The “Classical Music Bin” is not so common today in the age of digital music purchases and downloads, but I, for one, miss it!

And so, today, on Radio Riel’s Main stream, we feature a huge variety of music that people often categorize as “Classical”, as a tribute to the faded, but not forgotten, Record Store Classical Music Bin.  Enjoy the exploration!

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://main.radioriel.org . Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
