Music of the 40s

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. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
