Music of the 40s

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Thursday, 21 July, 2011

Today we continue the theme begun yesterday, and move on from the music of the inter‐war period to cover the music of the Second World War and the immediate post‐war period.

The bulk of today’s performances are original recordings from the war years, with other performances from later in the decade. The programme will run from 2am to approximately 4pm Pacific Time (10:00–00:00 in the UK) and will be followed by a programme of classical music and additional programming to be detailed here later, including the Riel Radio Theatre and Sekai No Discoteque.

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, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so.
