From the Library: Moving Music

Not sim­ply a var­ied col­lec­tion of music that might, at a stretch, be suit­able for mov­ing house; today Elrik Mer­lin — who does­n’t usu­al­ly present shows on Sun­days — offers lis­ten­ers a pro­gramme includ­ing (in amongst a lot of oth­er items) some of his all-time favourites: pieces that cer­tain­ly move him, one way or anoth­er, and make his hair stand on end.

There’s every­thing in here — from ELO to Vaugh­an Williams to the Bea­t­les to the Dix­ie Chicks to the Car­pen­ters to Secret Gar­den (we kid you not), inter­leaved with New Age and Smooth Jazz instru­men­tals.

As Elrik puts it, “My musi­cal tastes are so diverse, there’s bound to be some­thing in my library that you won’t like.” And plen­ty to like too, we hope.

Today’s show is ded­i­cat­ed to Radio Riel’s founder Gabi, who often presents the Sun­day show for your lis­ten­ing plea­sure, with best wish­es for a suc­cess­ful trans­po­si­tion. It’s also ded­i­cat­ed to Relay for Life in Sec­ond Life, which has events hap­pen­ing all this week­end. And find out more here.

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 Elrik Mer­lin.
