Radio Riel begins regular programming on June 1 and will be on air every day from 4:00pm - 8:00pm SLT. Our goal is to provide historically appropriate music to listeners interested in the Victorian Era, as well as special programming for all residents of Second Life.

On Radio Riel, you will hear Classical, Baroque, Celtic, Folk, English Renaissance and late 19th Century Popular music. We will soon be establishing a weekly "contemporary" event, during which we will play a variety of 20th and 21st Century musical genres. Check out the Radio Riel Schedule at for more details.

Radio Riel is based out of the Independent State of Caledon, a grouping of 17 Victorian and Steampunk themed Sims in Second Life. The Radio Riel Team includes: Red Caliber, Mitsu Figaro, Edward Pearse and Gabrielle Riel as DJs and Adec Alexandria and Jabb3r Panhandle as Event Hosts.

The Radio Riel DJs bring broad RL experience to our listeners. Red Caliber spun for several years as a RL club DJ. Mitsu Figaro's voice graced the airwaves as a DJ at her college radio station. Edward Pearse DJd in his local Goth Club scene. Gabrielle Riel provided DJ services and music programming for RL events, with extensive professional public speaking and performance experience.

I was so sad to have missed the entire event. Alas RL kept me out late at a business dinner. You were in my thoughts, though.
Can't wait to tune in!!
