The Light Programme

Wel­come to our month­ly pro­gramme of British Light Music — which will in future, all being well, go out on the last Sat­ur­day of the month.

This time we have con­tri­bu­tions from some of the great bands of the 30s and 40s, along with film music and oth­er com­po­si­tions from major fig­ures in British Light Music at the mid­dle of the last cen­tu­ry — such as Coates, Alwyn and Addin­sell.

The pic­ture shows a Lon­don Mid­land and Scot­tish Rail­way poster adver­tis­ing the Coro­na­tion Scot ser­vice with its stream­lined Coro­na­tion class loco­mo­tive — inspi­ra­tion for the theme by Vivian Ellis to the long-run­ning BBC radio series Paul Tem­ple, which we’ll hear today.

Then join us at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time — 19:00 and 03:00 GMT for the lat­est instal­ments of our excit­ing radio adven­tures in the ZBS Radio Hour — brought to you by our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion.

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. 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:
