Music of the Victorian & Edwardian Eras

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 28 November, 2012

Today on Radio Riel we present a collection of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

In fact the programme runs from around the mid‐19th Century to around the end of the First World War. This period — or parts of it — were variously referred to as La Belle Epoque in France and the Gilded Age through the Progressive Era in the United States.

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 vintage.

Then please join us for the latest in our series of chilling tales from the landmark radio drama series, The Black Mass, at 11am or 7pm Pacific Time (19:00 or 03:00 GMT).

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. 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:
