From the Library: The Light Programme

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 25 July, 2009

Join us today on Radio Riel for another journey into the world of Light Music from the first half of the 20th Century.

Light Music is characterised by a predominance of melody – generally memorable melody – which is one reason why it is a perfect companion to broadcasting, providing themes and even incidental music to drama, documentary, news and current affairs, and game shows. Often, people can recall the themes that punctuated their lives many, many decades ago.

Today we will be featuring Ted Heath and His Music, Sydney Torch and the Queen’s Hall Light Orchestra, and the music of Eric Coates.

The Light Programme is presented by Elrik Merlin as part of our series From the Library. For more information on the world of Light Music, please read this previous article.

Today’s programme on Radio Riel is produced in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can tune in now at .

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
