This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: October 2019

It’s October and most likely, wherever you are, the former season has given up all pretensions of lingering, and it is now well and truly autumn.  Autumn is different across the globe, but one thing we know is that it’s a great time for celebration. Soon it will be six months since last Faire, and six months till Fantasy Faire 2020 – and at Fantasy Faire Radio (where you only need to clear your throat loudly for us to party) we have seasonal fun to offer between now and All Hallows.

Come Party, Me Hearties!

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is September 19th, and Fantasy Faire Radio (FFR) will be two boot-straps ahead of the festivities on Sunday, September 15th as we celebrate PIRATE SUNDAY in the traditional high seas manner. Dust off yer peg leg and get yer fancy dress eye patch out for two hours of merriment and hijinks, beginning at 2pm slt.

FFR Pirate Sunday - Zander 01The The Pirates Cove on Deep Blue Lagoon will be open for business as we weigh anchor and set musical sail with that most notorious of seafaring brigands, DJ Zander Greene. All scalliwags are welcome – be they one, two, or four legged, tiny, petite, mer, or otherwise.  The Cove accommodates all, both above and beneath the waves. Shoulder Parrots optional. If yer mast is miss’n, hoist yer sails anyhow and join us.

If you like salty tales of the sea, stop in at The Friendly Tentacle Tavern, where FFR sponsor Seanchai Library has set up a Pirate Listening Room with stories streaming 24/7 read by the talented talespinner, Shandon Loring.  The Library will also be hosting Pirate Story events on Wednesday, September 18th, and Thursday, September 19th at 7pm slt. The Cove will remain open to the public through September 19th

This Month On Fantasy Faire Radio: August 2019

There was a lot of gratitude and even more fun at “The Night Fantastic” this past month, as Fantasy Faire Radio said “Thank you” to all the sponsors and supporters who have helped us move from being solely an event station to year-round broadcasting. The Elven Forest was filled with listeners, sponsors, and supporters of all kinds – peaking at sixty residents! The owners of The Elven Forest, Belladaine Nightfire and Dark Moon, opened their realm and have invited FFR to return in the future.  Thanks to all of you who joined us.

August will prove a bit more elusive, as people in the northern hemisphere enjoy their summer holidays and vacations.  It is a month where we have a lot of things in the works, and there may yet be a few surprises in store. So, stay tuned for *Breaking News!* which could be released later in the month. You just never know. But if you stay tuned to Fantasy Faire Radio, you WILL know!

FANTASY FAIRE RADIO SAYS “THANK YOU!”

 

Two years ago, Fantasy Faire Radio moved from being an annual event radio station running only during the Faire, to year-round broadcasting in cooperation with our media partner, Radio Riel.  It has taken a lot more than a will and a playlist to make this shift possible for a volunteer-run station. It’s required DJs, production, sponsors, and most of all listeners.  

Fantasy Faire Radio provides music and special programs for listeners in over 100 countries monthly. We invite you to come and celebrate, and let us say, “Thank you” for helping us make this vision a reality.

This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: July 2019

Night-Fantastic-poster

Welcome to Summer!

June was a terrific month for Fantasy Faire Radio. Our first live broadcast event of the season, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Live at LEA 2 was standing room only at the performance site, and had the highest listenership of any other broadcast event in the entire month.  Likewise, the three broadcasts of the Fairelands Players presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream were very well received: Fantasy Faire Radio listenership peaked in the 40s and mid 60s on the two days it was broadcast.

As we move through the summer this month, we will be presenting a single event: our opportunity to say “thank you” to everyone who has supported the evolution of Fantasy Faire Radio from annual event station to year-round broadcast proposition: listeners, sponsors, and supporters of all kinds. We are grateful to Belladaine Nightfire and Dark Moon, owners of The Elven Forest, who have graciously agreed to let us visit their realm for this event.

Mark your calendars and join us:
