The Midnight Special On RTRFM is 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!

The podcast retains the chat and the interviews though has to edit out the music for copyright reasons. If you want to hear full episodes, either head to our show page on the RTR website, or stream uncut episodes on our Mixcloud page.

The Take Away Special was an occasional podcast that ran from 2015 to 2017, which functioned as a pretty loose interview show hosted by Tristan Fidler. Each episode had a different co-host, and a different special guest - not a guest, the guest! - and conversation ensues. Features the world-famous segment 'Secret Perth', which explores the hidden treasures and buried gems of this thing called... Perth.

Tristan Fidler writes comics as A Rich Tapestry, hosts/produces a live talk show Magnolia's Late Night Live, and logs film reviews with Simon Miraudo as Movie Squad on RTRFM 92.1.
