Today on Radio Riel we present a collection of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras — “Vicwardiana”.
In fact the programme runs from around the mid-19th Century to around the end of the First World War.
The show covers a wide range of musical styles and genres, from music-hall songs to parlour ballads, from classical pieces to waltzes and dance-hall music, and music from mechanical instruments of the period (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Recordings are a mixture of modern and vintage.

We are testing our new server system today and would be pleased to hear comments. The new 128 kb/s mp3 Main Stream is on http:/streams.radioriel.org:8010/stream — and our test HE-AAC 88kb/s broadcast is on http://streams.radioriel.org:8090/stream
Note that our redirects don’t point at the new server yet — they point at the “old” streams.
