Swing into Summer

Today on Radio Riel, Elrik Mer­lin presents a pro­gramme of music from the 20s and 30s, includ­ing swing, jazz, nov­el­ty records and bal­lads of the peri­od.

The pro­gramme includes both orig­i­nal record­ings of the dance bands and artistes of the peri­od, along­side mod­ern re-cre­ations such as those of Max Raabe and the Palast Orch­ester, the San Fran­cis­co Starlight Orches­tra and many more. Enjoy as we “swing into sum­mer” on Radio Riel. Swing… and a great deal more!

After approx­i­mate­ly 4pm Pacif­ic Time, we will be broad­cast­ing a var­ied music pro­gramme pri­or to addi­tion­al pro­gram­ming that will take place lat­er in the evening. Please check this Pro­gramme Guide for details lat­er in the day.

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.
