Riel Day for Life 2013

On Sun­day, July 7, 2013, Radio Riel will be broad­cast­ing a spe­cial pro­gram from 12:00am to 11:29pm North Amer­i­can Pacif­ic time to raise funds for the Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety’s Relay For Life.

These 24 hours of pro­gram­ming on Radio Riel’s main stream are going to be deter­mined by you, our lis­ten­ers!  Each hour dur­ing the day will be up for grabs for a spe­cif­ic dona­tion amount.  Reserve an hour by pay­ing the amount and we will play the music of YOUR choice for that hour! All dona­tions go to the New Bab­bage Relay For Life Team.

Here are the para­me­ters for the day’s pro­gram­ming:

  • We deter­mined the pric­ing struc­ture for the dona­tions accord­ing to the num­ber of lis­ten­ers per hour that we aver­age on Sun­days.  Hours with more lis­ten­ers are more expen­sive than lighter hours
  • We priced the dona­tions so we will raise $100,000 L in the 24 hours
  • You can reserve as many hours as you want
  • Your pro­gram must be from music that is already in the Radio Riel music library.  We have an exten­sive and eclec­tic library, so we should be able to meet your request, how­ev­er as this project will be very labor inten­sive, we will not have time to track down your favorite obscure music
  • You can make two or three spe­cif­ic song requests for your hour.  Again, we won’t have time to cre­ate an all-request playlist for you from scratch.  If we do not have the song(s) in our library, then we will con­tact you to work out an appro­pri­ate solu­tion
  • If you are a DJ, you can reserve time on the sched­ule to play a live set if you wish, as long as you adhere to DMCA inter­net broad­cast­ing rules. Talk to Gabrielle Riel if you need more infor­ma­tion about these rules
  • The Radio Riel Ball­room in the New Bab­bage sim is at your dis­pos­al if you want to host an event in Sec­ond Life there dur­ing your hour(s).  We do ask that you do not place a tip jar. All tips and dona­tions go into an New Bab­bage RFL kiosk

You can view the sched­ule online in a pub­lic Google doc­u­ment: http://tinyurl.com/rielday2103

If you would like to reserve an hour, fol­low these steps:

  1. Please send me an email at gabrielle.riel@gmail.com with the hour you would like to reserve and the theme of your pro­gram
  2. If you are a mem­ber of Sec­ond Life, tele­port to the Radio Riel Ball­room in the New Bab­bage sim in Sec­ond Life and pay the RFL kiosk the amount for your hour
  3. If you are not a mem­ber of Sec­ond Life, or if you pre­fer to donate in US dol­lars, you can sub­mit your dona­tion via the New Bab­bage Con­vio site

If you do not pro­vide pay­ment with­in 24 hours of send­ing your email reser­va­tion, then your reser­va­tion is can­celed and the hour becomes avail­able again.

There will also be an all-day dance/listening par­ty at Radio Riel Ball­room in the New Bab­bage sim so please join us, be a part of the Riel Day For Life and sup­port the New Bab­bage RFL Team and the Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety in the fight to con­quer can­cer.
