Main: Songs From My Father

Radio Riel has been on air for over 9 years and it has been a long time since I (Gabrielle) have talked about its roots. Radio Riel was very much a con­ver­gence of the right peo­ple, place and time when we launched it on June 1, 2007; how­ev­er there was a per­son who was the sin­gle largest influ­ence on who I am musi­cal­ly, and who thus influ­ences what you Riel Audio­philes hear on Radio Riel. That per­son was my father.

Today is the 10-year anniver­sary of my father’s death. I am remem­ber­ing and hon­or­ing him with today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream, which con­sists of some of his favorite music. You will hear a lot of Jazz, from Big Band to Cool. You will also hear the music of Film Noir and clips from clas­sic radio seri­als. There is also music from the 1950s and to top it all off, some Blue­grass!

Please enjoy the Songs from My Father. He was as much of an enter­tain­er as I am and he would be ecsta­t­ic to know that you find joy in his music today.


Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. To lis­ten from out­side of the Unit­ed States, click here to start your play­er .
