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!

Midnight Special is a late night chat show with a different talented host each week. Special guests – the best guests ever – will sit down for a casual, loose conversation on the mic, either live in the studio or pre-recorded at earlier hours.
From musicians, writers, artists, actors, comedians and whoever has an interesting story to tell, the Midnight Special is an opportunity to go beyond the stock questions and understand the creative people in and around (and even outside of) Perth in deeper ways.
Tune in to hang out. Broadcasts Thursdays at 11 pm on RTRFM 92.1
