World Men­tal Health Day — 10 Octo­ber

World Men­tal Health Day is observed on 10 Octo­ber every year, with the over­all objec­tive of rais­ing aware­ness of men­tal health issues around the world and mobi­liz­ing efforts in sup­port of men­tal health. Click here for more infor­ma­tion.

As part of this effort we are join­ing with oth­er sta­tions in Britain and else­where at 10:59 am this morn­ing to rebroad­cast the #Men­tal­Health­Minute – a one-minute mes­sage from some world famous voic­es to let every­one know that who­ev­er you are, how­ev­er you’re feel­ing and what­ev­er you’re going through, it’s okay to say. The spot fea­tures The Duke of Cam­bridge, Prince Har­ry, Lady Gaga, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Jes­si­ca Ennis-Hill & David Hare­wood. It was orig­i­nal­ly cre­at­ed for the UK’s Men­tal Health Aware­ness Week back in May. We’re broad­cast­ing the spot at 10:59am UK time and again at 6:59pm, 2:59am, and 7:59 am UK time — that’s 2:59am, 10:59am, 6:59pm, and 11:59pm Pacif­ic Time.


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 peri­od per­for­mances.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.
