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.

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:

THE DREAMS ARE NOT OVER YET on Fantasy Faire Radio

If you were not among the many enthusiastic guests at A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Live on LEA 2 last weekend, you still have a chance to enjoy Shakespeare’s fantastical romp into love, relationships, and magic in the moonlight. You’ll have three chances, in fact!

This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio – June 2019

In 2017 Fantasy Faire Radio took a big step forward: announcing that the station would be broadcasting year round and not just during the Faire. This month “FFR” takes another step forward with the introduction of scheduled special programs outside the Faire season. This is yet another way for the station to help Fairelanders stay engaged and connected 12 months a year.

June features special events centering on the Summer Solstice (June 21st) and William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The action of the Bard’s playful adventure into romance, love, and relationships all takes place in a single fantastical night. Most of the action occurs in a woodland outside the ancient city of Athens where fairies skip, and moonlit frolics are fraught with both misunderstanding and misdirection.

TALES now available on Mixcloud

Fantasy Faire in Second Life has emerged anew from the mists of the virtual world to create a new and immersive fantasy-inspired experience each year for the past eleven years. Since the 2015 Faire, writers have gathered to pen new stories and poems inspired by the Fairelands as part of the annual LitFest. And though the Fairelands disappear back into the mists every year, the stories remain to inspire and transport.

Tales from the Fairelands, on Fantasy Faire Radio, brings those stories to the regular listening audience throughout the year. Now, Tales from the Fairelands from 2016 to the present are available on Mixcloud to enjoy whenever you wish – 40 individual episodes with compositions by nearly 20 different authors, including some longer Tales that have never been broadcast before.
