50 Years Above the Earth

Today we’re cel­e­brat­ing two space trav­el anniver­saries that occurred yes­ter­day: first, the 50th anniver­sary of the first human jour­ney into space by Yuri Gagarin; and sec­ond­ly the 30th anniver­sary of the first orbital test flight of the NASA Space Shut­tle.

As a result, we’ll be play­ing selec­tions of music with a space theme, from a wide range of gen­res, from rock to clas­si­cal and with a vari­ety of instru­men­ta­tion. Artists range as wide­ly as Isao Tomi­ta and the Car­pen­ters; Karl Jenk­ins and Bri­an Eno; and Holst and Mannheim Steam­roller.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with our friends at the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in
