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.
Last Thursday, the Special was all about playtime. We caught up with local performancemakers KAN Collective to chat about their immersive Paper Mountain playspace, House of Joys. Blair Vidakovich introduced us to the world of underground Atari programming and revolutionary rock-paper-scissors. Guest selector Mason Rothwell spun some choice bops, tunes, and/or bangers from video game soundtracks.
