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.
For this episode of the Midnight Special On RTRFM, your host Tristan Fidler (from Movie Squad) explores the art of TV Themes, songs and music written for the opening credits of TV shows. It's THE TV THEME SPECIAL! Joined by special guest DK KL (from Ambient Zone), we count down a Top Ten TV Themes Of All Time as voted by Midnight Special listeners and RTRFM members. We also hear KL's Top Five, listening to the TV Themes that meant the most to him (and others) growing up including synth classics like Grange Hill and Monkey. We also cover sub-genres like Nineties Teen Dramas, Animated Shows and Modern Comedy Classics. Thank you to everyone for your messages and suggestions - we will do a follow-up show soon to cover the huge amount of themes we missed! Rest In Peace, Luke Perry.
