From last year's event notice:

I did my first-ever broadcast, for UCF Music Night, 2005 June 19. At the time I barely knew what I was doing, having been taught how to broadcast by Donahoo at the Tapestry Happy Hour about a week and a half earlier.
UCF was the Uru Christian Fellowship, started by Andrew C. We wanted to get the name out there, and my background plan was to do some kind of regular musical event to promote healing among the Cavern's many subgroups. Music Night turned into something other than what I expected, so I tried another public event that flopped. Music Night moved to the GoG Shard, then to Great Tree, then to Uru Live and now... who knows? I still broadcast.
That first Music Night all I knew how to do was play entire CDs that had been copied to the computer. I had about 10 available in two main 'tracks: contemplative, and more dance-oriented. We ended up doing the contemplative and that set the tone for successive Music Nights. Uru music, Loreena McKennitt, Riven music. It worked well enough that folks wanted to continue, so I gradually moved my music to the PC and learned how to play individual songs. Eventually I even learned what a playlist was.
Somehow the word went out. Ashtar asked for music for his Great Tree anniversary party. Then I started alternating with Donahoo for the Happy Hour. Eventually I started "Up On the Roof!" as a one-man event. It expanded to a 10-hour extravaganza to accommodate Europeans, with the great help of the Rooftop Volunteer Group. And on we went until the Cavern closed.
Becoming a DJ was easy. Staying as a D'niJ wouldn't have happened without enthusiastic audiences. So, this is the day to celebrate all those hundreds of shows. I don't know what the future holds and am not going to worry about it. For now... (in the words of Ace)
And sing ballads
And go chicken trucking
And minuet, sonata, passacaglia and anything else I can think of. This will be the day to pull out all the stops. I'll be talking, too. You have been warned.
The celebration begins in The Watcher's Sanctuary at:
10:00 US Pacific
11:00 US Mountain
12:00 US Central
13:00 US Eastern
19:00 Central European

At some point, the celebration will move to my Minkata for a very special segment (that's all I'm allowed to say). To attend this portion, you must request an invitation which you can do by posting your KI # here, or if you're shy, send it to me by PM here, or if you don't have a forum account, you can send me a KI message in the cavern. My KI # is 6001. As I receive requests for invites, I'll post them here, so you can check the Guest List to make sure I've received yours.

Also, if anyone would like to host a corresponding celebration in SL, please post details here.
The broadcast will be on the land server at the Guild of Healers Outreach Retreat in Second Life and anyone is welcome to go there and listen during the event. Presumably most of the GoH members will be in Uru at the time, but Elsie will be there to greet visitors. Please be kind to her and give her a pat as she's still pining for Ktahdn.
If Ktahdn drops any more shoes (details), I'll be sure to post them here.
Edit: A shoe was dropped: It appears that the Minkata segment will be something of a reprise of an event Ktahdn did in SL last year - the Silk Road journey, "a metaphorical caravan from mysterious China through desert and mountain, climbing and descending, to the Mediterranean Sea following the interwoven complexities of the Silk Road."
