Victorian Music-Hall

My Lords, Ladies and Gen­tle­men, it gives me great plea­sure to present to you… the inim­itable… the incom­pa­ra­ble… the musi­co­log­i­cal… the Vic­to­ri­an Music-Hall!

Join us today for a selec­tion of pop­u­lar musi­cal enter­tain­ments from the late 19th and ear­ly 20th cen­turies. You’ll hear songs and bal­lads from the peri­od, light clas­si­cal pieces, dance music and even the sounds of street organs and mechan­i­cal instru­ments from par­lour and pub­lic-house.

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:

For more infor­ma­tion on the Alexan­dri­an Free Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Con­sor­tium mem­bers in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Alexan­dri­an Free Library web­site, or one of their branch­es in-world.
