A late night talk show that changes every week with a new host and a different topic.
Special guest/s will hang out live in studio, providing good chat and occasional performances between tunes. Or there’ll be a music-themed focus with a presenter taking the listener through a particular genre, era, band, geographical location, etc. We’ve had chefs talk about their favourite tunes, sound collage interviews about dreams, audio recordings from festivals, podcast episodes about MIDI tunes, on-air live karaoke, movie soundtrack focused shows, and so much more!
Whatever the week, you can always count on it being something special!
Forget sleep, stay up, and listen to the Midnight Special On RTRFM.
Tristan Fidler hosts and presents two hours of chat, improvisational music and movie recommendations. In the first hour, we welcome a musical trip comprised of Annika Moses, Beth Gosper and Shanae Campbell. They talk about studying at WAAPA, the differences in creating folk music and experimental performances, and answer some trademark Midnight Special segments (Sandwich Tales). They also perform beautifully with a prepared piece and an improvised work. In the second hour, we talk to musician Adem K (Turnstyle, The Community Chest) who discusses Five Film Recommendations - the genre? 1970s Sci-Fi! Have a listen to Adem's selections and his reasons for why each film is a favourite he could watch weekly. Then we also answer our song poll early on - which song is best to celebrate the wet weather - 'It's Raining Men' by The Weathergirls or 'Raining Blood' by Slayer. #RainingMenOrRainingBlood
