Music of the 20s & 30s

Today on Main, enjoy a pro­gramme of music from the 1920s and 30s, com­posed of orig­i­nal record­ings and more recent re-record­ings. The cri­te­ri­on is sim­ply that the piece was writ­ten dur­ing the peri­od, so you’ll in fact hear per­for­mances vir­tu­al­ly from then until now.

The pro­gramme includes jazz, dance music, big band, rag­time and pop­u­lar songs — and much more.

The Black Mass

Then don’t miss our spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of the land­mark radio dra­ma series The Black Mass, cre­at­ed by Erik Bauers­feld, John Whit­ing and col­leagues at KPFA in Berke­ley in the 1960s and 1970s.

Tune in at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic time — that’s 19:00 or 03:00 UK time — for the lat­est in this sea­son of extreme­ly unset­tling tales. Tonight, instead of one long piece we bring you a col­lec­tion of six clas­sic chillers from the pen of Lord Dun­sany. Do be sure to tune in and join the Cir­cle of Empa­thy…

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world at the appoint­ed time at, 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:
