Queen Elizabeth II 1926 — 2022

We at Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio extend our con­do­lences to our friends and col­leagues in the Unit­ed King­dom and the Com­mon­wealth on the death of Her Majesty Queen Eliz­a­beth II. Her reign was long, and filled with many events that both chal­lenged and advanced the lives of her peo­ple, while she inspired the world.  We pay our respects and hon­our her memory.

We are cur­rent­ly pre­sent­ing a pro­gramme of music by a vari­ety of British com­posers fol­low­ing this sad event.

What does that mean?
1. Great music will con­tin­ue to broad­cast 24/7
2. Some of our reg­u­lar week­ly fea­tures will not be running
3. “Dreams of Rio” should still run at Noon & 4pm slt/pacific on Friday
4. The month­ly live broad­cast of “The Mag­ic of The Musi­cal” — this month fea­tur­ing the work of Stephen Sond­heim — will still broad­cast this Sat­ur­day at 2pm slt/pacific.
Thank you for your support.
Stay Tuned!
