in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Monday, 6 October, 2008

Radio Riel’s music today is from the extensive library of Magnatune, an innovative record company on the cutting edge of internet-based content production and distribution. Magnatune, whose motto is “We are not evil”, was launched by John Buckman in mid-2004 and today represents a remarkable collection of artists from all kinds of genres.

Today, we present a wide selection of mediaeval music from the files of Radio Riel’s featured label. To find out more about these artists, visit

To find out more about Magnatune, read their information pages. But above all, listen to the music here on Radio Riel’s Magnatune programs, and if you like what you hear, support them! Visit the site, and buy some of the music you’ve been listening to. There are lots of other listening options on the site too. For a more detailed study of Magnatune’s business model, check out this Open Rights Group case study.
