In this Season of Hope, we will shut out nothing from our firesides and everyone will be welcome.
~ the character of Charles Dickens from the film “The Man Who Invented Christmas”
“Dickens? Fantasy?,” you say. “Bah, Humbug!,” we say. A Christmas Carol has much that is fantastical: supernatural phenomena, time travel, magical flight, ghosts! Dickens could have hardly made it more of a fantasy if he’d dressed the Ghost of Christmas Past in an Alia Baroque custom skin, and a Faida gown.
Sunday, December 15th from 2-4pm slt Fantasy Faire Radio will embrace the energy of the holidays, and share it with Rock from Dickens Square. DJ Elrik Merlin will play classic rock from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean at The Dickens Project SL. Continue reading Fantasy Faire Radio Rocks The Dickens Project – Sunday, December 15th
Welcome to December! Before you know it, it will be time for another Fantasy Faire. It won’t be too long before Fantasy Faire Radio (FFR) will be switching its focus to preparing for those weeks in late Spring that unite us in a common purpose.
There are still a couple of months, and FFR still has a few off-season tricks up its collective sleeves. This month we’ll be visiting The Dickens Project in SL, a winter holiday tradition produced by FFR sponsor, Seanchai Library.
“Dickens? Fantasy?,” you say. “Bah, Humbug!,” we say. A Christmas Carol has much that is fantastical: supernatural phenomena, time travel, magical flight, ghosts! Dickens could have hardly made it more of a fantasy if he’d thrown in a pack of caroling lycans decked out in garlands of mistletoe.
“I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their house pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.”
~ from the Preface to A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
FFR has two events from The Dickens Project this month: Continue reading This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: December 2019
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.
The 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

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!
