The Second Annual Riel Day For Life

On Sun­day, June 5, 2011, Radio Riel will be broad­cast­ing a very spe­cial pro­gram from 12:00am SLT to 12:00am SLT on Mon­day, June 6 to raise funds for the Amer­i­can Can­cer Soci­ety’s Relay For Life. This event is a joint ven­ture between Radio Riel and the Aether Chrononauts Relay For Life Team, which includes res­i­dents from the Sec­ond Life com­mu­ni­ties of Cala Mon­dra­go, Ser­aph City, New Toulouse and Win­ter­fell.

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 dona­tion amount, and we will play the music of your choice for that hour!  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 have aver­aged on every Sun­day in the month of May.  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 “Bar Band Music from Spring­field, Mass­a­chu­setts from 1973 — 1977” or some oth­er obscu­ri­ty
  • You can make one or two 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 Edi­son Ball­room in New Toulouse Bour­bon is at your dis­pos­al if you want to host an event there dur­ing your hour(s).  We do ask that you do not place a tip jar, and that all tips and dona­tions go into an Aether Chrononauts RFL kiosk

Radio Riel’s Music Library is around 50,000 music tracks and con­tains every genre, era and style imag­in­able, with the excep­tion of Con­tem­po­rary Top 40 Coun­try Music and hard core Rap.

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

1. Please send us an email at with the hour you would like to reserve and the theme of your pro­gram

2. Tele­port to Radio Riel Head­quar­ters in Ser­aph City in Sec­ond Life and pay the RFL kiosk the amount for your hour. If you do not pay the kiosk with­in 24 hours of send­ing your email reser­va­tion, then your reser­va­tion is can­celled and the hour becomes avail­able again

You can view the sched­ule online in a pub­lic Google doc­u­ment in order to see which hours are still avail­able:

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