You asked for it – you’ve got it. It’s the biggest hits of orchestrions, street organs, fairground music, and mechanical tunes, from the 17th Century, 20th century, and yesterday.

You asked for it – you’ve got it. It’s the biggest hits of orchestrions, street organs, fairground music, and mechanical tunes, from the 17th Century, 20th century, and yesterday.

Oh, you didn’t ask for that? Well… you get it anyway. “We’ve picked the most iconic instruments of all styles, from 17th century music boxes, to self playing MIDI accordions,” say the broadcasters of 24-hour-a-day Mechanical Music Radio.

Here’s the direct stream:

The station is the creation of James Dundon, who curates and organizes the music.

Need a pick me up? You’re covered – there’s “feel good” toe tappers at 6pm and midnight to get your party going plus Friday night uptempo party lineups. And … daily at 6am and noon, because mechanical music lovers party at all kinds of hours. That’s how they roll. (The phrase “24 hour party people” I believe refers to listeners of this streaming radio station.)

Need the latest news of what’s happening in mechanical music events around the world? Top of the hour, every hour. (You need to know what’s up in street organ events, like hourly, way more than traffic and weather together on the 8s.)

Vinyl? Digital? No – fairground mechanical, for maximum fidelity and impact.

It’s the world’s first 24-hour mechanical music radio.

It’s also the world’s only 24-hour mechanical music radio, but I’ll establish a CDM tag for it just in case it inspires others.

Don’t know your barrel piano from your orchestrion? Sheesh, don’t let your friends find that out – check here for the instruments you’re hearing on the radio:

Thanks to Graham Dunning for spotting this; for his part, Graham has made mechanical music into a modern techno act:

Just discovered Mechanical Music Radio – 24hr streaming fairground organ bangers.
"Every hour takes you on a journey though automatic instruments. We've crafted every hour to make sure whenever you tune in, you're never far away from a style of mechanical music you enjoy. "

And yeah, Graham has one of the coolest Boiler Rooms ever:

Here’s wishing you a great weekend of fairground bangers – no clangers.
