Say hello to…Radio Riel Steampunk!

Some­thing new, exciting…and clank­ing and tick­ing is just around the cor­ner for you Riel Audio­philes! Next week (hope­ful­ly Mon­day, cross your fin­gers), Radio Riel will be launch­ing a third stream that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Cur­rent­ly you can tune in at any time to lis­ten to Radio Riel’s Main stream, which plays an eclec­tic mix of gen­res for your enjoy­ment or you can tune into Radio Riel New Toulouse, which plays ear­ly Jazz, Cajun, Blues, Zyde­co and New Orleans music. Well, hold on to your gog­gles and pre­pare for…

Radio Riel Steam­punk

This stream will run 24/7 and play the very wide vari­ety of music that can be clas­si­fied as “Steam­punk”. The usu­al sus­pects (Abney Park, Vern­ian Process, Emi­lie Autumn) will be a part of the dai­ly pro­gram, as well as mechan­i­cal music, a lit­tle Goth, a lit­tle Dark­wave and Elec­tron­ic Clas­si­cal music.

We are also eager to expand and add to the stream, so please let us know if you find new music that you would con­sid­er “Steam­punk”. Email us at or leave com­ments here on our Blog!

In order to make Radio Riel Steam­punk hap­pen each month, we need sup­port from Spon­sors. I have includ­ed infor­ma­tion about our Spon­sor­ship Pro­gram here. Please con­tact me (Gabrielle Riel — if you’d like to become a Spon­sor and sup­port the cost of the new Radio Riel Steam­punk stream, as well as the ongo­ing costs for Radio Riel Main and Radio Riel New Toulouse.

Radio Riel Sponsorship Program

Program Summary

Radio Riel offers spon­sor­ship to indi­vid­u­als and busi­ness­es that would like to con­tribute to our efforts in bring­ing our eclec­tic vari­ety of music and pro­gram­ming to Sec­ond Life res­i­dents and lis­ten­ers on the Inter­net.

Radio Riel is a Sec­ond Life/Internet ver­sion of an Actu­al Life non­prof­it, pub­lic radio ser­vice, such as the British Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (BBC), the Cana­di­an Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (CBC) and Nation­al Pub­lic Radio (NPR). There­fore we do not run tra­di­tion­al radio com­mer­cials. Instead we car­ry spon­sor mes­sages, very much in the same style as you might find on Nation­al Pub­lic Radio in the Unit­ed States.

Spon­sor­ship earns you the fol­low­ing:

  • A short, on-air spon­sor mes­sage sim­i­lar to: “Pro­gram­ming on Radio Riel is is made pos­si­ble in part by spon­sors such as the XYZ Com­pa­ny. The XYZ Com­pa­ny, the place to fill all of your XYZ needs in Sec­ond Life. Vis­it the XYZ Com­pa­ny in the ABC Sim.”
  • Mes­sage play on all three Radio Riel streams: Radio Riel Main, Radio Riel New Toulouse and Radio Riel Steam­punk
  • Your logo on the Radio Riel web­site with a link to your web­site, or your SLURL in SL.

There are two lev­els of spon­sor­ship avail­able:

  • Pre­mi­um Spon­sor­ship — $10,000 L per month, spon­sor mes­sage plays 8 times a day, on each of the Radio Riel streams, every day for the month
  • Stan­dard Spon­sor­ship — $5,000 L per month, spon­sor mes­sage plays 4 times a day, on each of the Radio Riel streams, every day for the month

Spon­sor mes­sages will not run on a sched­ule, but ran­dom­ly through­out each 24 hour peri­od. There­fore Pre­mi­um Spon­sor mes­sages will play on aver­age once every 3 hours and Stan­dard Spon­sor mes­sages will play on aver­age once every 6 hours.

Please con­tact Gabrielle Riel to learn more or to become a Radio Riel Spon­sor.

Sponsor Message Guidelines

Please let Gabrielle Riel know if there is any spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion you must have in your spon­sor mes­sage. Spon­sor mes­sage guide­lines are as fol­lows:

  • Spon­sor mes­sages begin with a pre­am­ble that may vary slight­ly from mes­sage to mes­sage, of the form, “Today’s pro­gram­ming on Radio Riel is made pos­si­ble in part by” fol­lowed by the name of the spon­sor.
  • Spon­sor mes­sages are a max­i­mum of 15 sec­onds in length. We will con­sid­er up to 30 sec­ond mes­sages for qual­i­fy­ing spe­cial events.
  • Radio Riel on-air tal­ent will record the spon­sor mes­sage.
  • Radio Riel will restrict spon­sor mes­sages to fac­tu­al infor­ma­tion about the spon­sor, includ­ing loca­tion, prod­uct name and descrip­tion of ser­vices.
  • Spon­sor mes­sages may con­tain SL loca­tion infor­ma­tion, names of con­tacts to IM, web site address­es, event dates and loca­tions.
