We’re pleased to announce that Radio Riel has been nom­i­nat­ed in the ‘Favorite SL Radio Sta­tion’ cat­e­go­ry of the 2011 Avi Choice Awards.

Radio Riel, an Inter­net radio sta­tion found­ed and based in the vir­tu­al world of Sec­ond Life, has received a nom­i­na­tion in the “Favorite SL Radio Sta­tion” cat­e­go­ry for the 2011 Avi Choice Awards, the annu­al awards rec­og­niz­ing tal­ent in Sec­ond Life, as deter­mined by the votes of SL res­i­dents. Vot­ing is active now at and ends on Decem­ber 5th at 12pm SLT. All awards will be pre­sent­ed at the Avi Choice Awards show on Decem­ber 10.

Radio Riel was found­ed in Sec­ond Life on June 1, 2007 in the Inde­pen­dent State of Cale­don with the goal of pro­vid­ing a “sound­track” of Clas­si­cal, Peri­od and Eng­lish Folk music to the Neo-Vic­to­ri­an and Steam­punk com­mu­ni­ties in Sec­ond Life. The sta­tion has since grown to offer six sep­a­rate audio streams, each with its own style and genre of music. Around half its lis­ten­ers are res­i­dents of Sec­ond Life, with a con­tin­u­ous­ly-grow­ing addi­tion­al pop­u­la­tion of lis­ten­ers tun­ing in over the Inter­net.

Radio Riel’s Main Stream fea­tures a dif­fer­ent genre each day, cho­sen from Clas­si­cal, Pop­u­lar and Folk music — from Ear­ly Music to around 1950. Radio Riel New Toulouse presents the music of New Orleans, pri­mar­i­ly from the first half of the 20th Cen­tu­ry. Radio Riel Steam­punk is one of the few Steam­punk radio sta­tions in the world, and plays Steam­punk, Goth, Dark­wave, Dark Cabaret and more, while Radio Riel Dieselpunk fea­tures Jazz and Pop music from the 1930s and 1940s. Radio Riel Rever­ie includes Ear­ly Music, New Age, Down­tem­po Elec­tron­i­ca and more. Final­ly Radio Riel Volksmusik plays folk music from Cen­tral, North­ern and East­ern Europe.

Radio Riel also fea­tures sched­uled pro­gram­ming such as live music shows with com­men­tary (World Music at Mad­hu’s, Jazz by the Canal, Break­fast in Bab­bage, Audite Nova, Sekai no Dis­coteque); audio dra­mas (Riel Radio The­atre, the ZBS Radio Hour, the Radio Riel Play­ers Present); and the lit­er­ary pod­cast Off the Shelf.
