We've recently changed the audio format for our live stream in order to improve the quality and to support more devices and services such as iHeartRadio.
Unfortunately, this means we can no longer support Internet Explorer for listening to our live stream as it does not support the new format. Please see our Streaming Guide for alternative ways to listen to our live stream on your computer, mobile or smart speaker devices.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
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.
Your host Tristan Fidler returns with a fantastic episode of late night chat! We first talk to writer Charlotte Guest about her debut book, a collection of poetry entitled Soap, and we discuss literary matters such as the development of a writing style, what unites the pieces in the book in terms of subject matter and theme, and how working in the publishing industry affected her writing. Then we continue with our semi-regular segment of Film Recommendations with Visual Artist Erin Coates who talks at lenth about several of her picks for the sub-genre of 'Difficult To Watch Movies (That You Should Watch)'. We also kick things off with Birthday Messages for #OurHugh, yes, on the date that we recorded we said Happy Birthday to Hugh Jackman and answered our song challenge poll of Oklahoma or The Boy From Oz. What a show! What a special! A midnight special!
