About

What is KLR?
KLR is an online radio station in Second Life playing music from the 1960s to recent times.

What does KLR stand for?
The acronym KLR comes from two sources. The radio station is based in Karuvium in Second Life, and so it stands for Karuvium Light Radio. But it’s also our strapline “Keep Listening Regularly”.

What music does KLR play?
KLR is a unique online radio station. Most radio stations today are heavily formatted to one particular style of the music genre, but at KLR we believe that a wide variety of music should be available to our listeners. Most radio stations of a commercial nature target younger listeners, or have a specific agenda catering to their commercial advertisers, such as Gold, Jazz, Dance, Trance, Country etc. KLR doesn’t take advertising and we have no such agenda, leaving us free to play almost anything we want to. KLR is a 24-hour radio service whose model is to play melodic, well-produced hits and album tracks, both studio recordings and live concert tracks. We do not play drum-n-bass, rap or heavy rock for example, but we do play melodic trance and dance, pop, soft rock, country, album tracks, brass and silver bands, classic instrumentals and many other genres from the 1960’s to modern times. We have been described as being ‘eclectic’.

What DJ shows are there on KLR?
There are no DJ’s on KLR but we do use professional voiceovers between some songs to identify the station and to pre-trail any events or special features. Occasionally, the station owner may present the music for a party in Second Life, and this year the station broadcast live from the virtual Second Pride arena featuring 2 popular Second Life DJ’s. It is part of the plan to attend events and broadcast live from time to time.

Who owns KLR?
The service is produced voluntarily by a former professional radio presenter/producer with 23 years of service to the industry in both commercial radio and the BBC, and with 5 years experience in managing local community stations licensed by Ofcom.

Who listens to KLR?
KLR is designed to be a sustaining service in virtual establishments in Second Life, such as nightclubs, shops and malls. KLR is also used by parcel owners as their land default station, or to program into their in-world radios. We also know that some Second Life members have tuned KLR into their desktop PC’s, mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. Our URL is: https://sonic.onlineaudience.co.uk/8078/stream

In the near future, KLR plans to have presenters live in the mix and actual programmes presented by other volunteers, both live and recorded.
