From the Library — Vicwardiana

Today on Radio Riel we present a col­lec­tion of music from the Vic­to­ri­an and Edwar­dian eras — “Vicwar­diana”. In fact the pro­gramme runs from around the mid-19th Cen­tu­ry to around the end of the First World War.

The show cov­ers a wide range of musi­cal styles and gen­res, from music-hall songs to par­lour bal­lads, from clas­si­cal pieces to waltzes and dance-hall music, and music from mechan­i­cal instru­ments of the peri­od (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Record­ings are a mix­ture of mod­ern and vin­tage.

Then please join us at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 in the UK) for the lat­est instal­ments in our excit­ing radio adven­tures — Return to Inver­ness and The Illu­sion­ati in The ZBS Radio Hour.

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
