From The Library — Anniversary of the Airship!

On the 24th of Sep­tem­ber 1852 Hen­ri Gif­fard became the first per­son to suc­cess­ful­ly fly a pow­ered air­ship, trav­el­ling 27 km from Paris to Trappes. In hon­our of this momen­tous occa­sion today’s music will fea­ture songs that refer (some­times very ten­u­ous­ly) to the theme of flight.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now in-world at, or click one of the but­tons below. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Edward Pearse.
