The Music of Yesterday

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 25 September, 2013

Today on Radio Riel we present a collection of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

In fact the programme runs from around the mid‐19th Century to around the end of the First World War.

The show covers a wide range of musical styles and genres, from music‐hall songs to parlour ballads, from classical pieces to waltzes and dance‐hall music, and music from mechanical instruments of the period (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Recordings are a mixture of modern and vintage.


Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin.
