This year’s Relay For Life of Second Life weekend is upon us! The culmination of months of fundraising events in aid of the American Cancer Society takes the form of a virtual Relay for Life, where, just as in real-world RFL event of the same name that take place around the world, avatars run around a virtual track raising money for cancer research. In addition, again just as in RL, there are “campsites” built by the fundraising teams — many of which are quite remarkable and worth a visit.
Radio Riel has been associated with RFLofSL for several years in several ways: this year our principal participation is as the co-creators, with Zander Greene, of Fantasy Faire Radio, the official radio station of one of the biggest fundraising events for RFLofSL, Fantasy Faire. FFR is also an official RFLofSL Media Partner.
Over the coming weekend, Radio Riel’s Main Stream will be carrying three days of special Fantasy-themed programming, including a live broadcast from the deck of the FaireChylde, FFR’s Fantasy Faire dragon-powered sky-ship home, moored temporarily at Booke Marsh Station on Media Row in RFL Give. Visit FFR here in Second Life.
On Friday 15th, Gabrielle Riel will be programming Main Stream in a specially-themed “Once Upon A Time” broadcast. On Saturday 16th, Elrik Merlin will be playlisting Main for a fantasy-themed day’s programming including a live show from the deck of the FaireChylde at 1pm Pacific Time/21:00 UK time. Then on Sunday 17th, Gabi will be programming a day of Early Music.
Do tune in, and if you are a Second Life listener, do come and visit FFR in-world.
