Join us today on Radio Riel for another journey into the world of Light Music from the first half of the 20th Century.

Light Music is characterised by a predominance of melody – generally memorable melody – which is one reason why it is a perfect companion to broadcasting, providing themes and even incidental music to drama, documentary, news and current affairs, and game shows. Often, people can recall the themes that punctuated their lives many, many decades ago.

The Light Programme is presented by Elrik Merlin as part of our series From the Library. For more information on the world of Light Music, please read this previous article.

• From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. For more information on the Caledon Library, current exhibits and the work of Second Life reference libraries in general, please visit the Caledon Library Web site, or one of their locations in-world.

You can listen now at http://music.radioriel.org — the ideal URL for you to use in your home parcel media address in-world — or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player. (If you want to listen off-world, eg in Winamp or iTunes, and the above address doesn’t work for you, click here.)
