Randophonic is …

Randophonic is a radio program which broadcasts pretty much every Saturday night (11pm-2am Pacific Time) on CiTR.FM.101.9 (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada). If it’s currently Saturday night into Sunday morning (11pm-2am Pacific Time), you can stream Randophonic live right now.

If you’re interested in past shows, Randophonic has posted a pile of stuff to its MixCloud page. There’s also our podcast archive (click on the episode in question to stream it, or if you wish to download it, right-click select “save link as”).

Randophonic’s Facebook is mostly up to date. It’s probably the best way to stay on top of day-to-day Randophonic action. We’re currently avoiding other social networks, though that may change.


What kind of a radio show is Randophonic? Apparently, we rate as eclectic. Which is a boring way of saying that we don’t do anything in particular (except for when we do). Because as far as we’re concerned, Duke Ellington got it right when he said, “There are only two kinds of music. Good and bad.” We try to play only the good stuff. Who cares what part of town, part of the world, part of the galaxy it’s from?


How 2B Confused is Randophonic’s latest countdown, and our longest, least concise yet, tracking as it does the 1499 Records We All Really Need To Hear Before The Eschaton Immenatizes. Whatever that means.


Before How 2B Confused, Randophonic’s main focus was The Final Countdown, which failed completely after twenty-five instalments which can still be found via our Mixcloud page (just keep scrolling down).

Before the Final Countdown (up until October, 2017) Randophonic’s main focus was the Solid Time of Change (aka the 661 Greatest Records of the so-called Prog Rock era), an overlong yet incomplete history of whatever the hell happened in not all music, but definitely a bunch of it between 1965 and 1979.

Previous to that, it was A Young Person’s Guide to Getting Wasted (aka the 531 Greatest Drug Related Records of the 1990s), which was preceded by St. Steven’s POP Apocalypse (aka the 333 most Singular Records of All Time).

You may also have heard of Philip Random’s All Vinyl Countdown + Apocalypse (aka The 1,111 Greatest Records You’ve Probably Never Heard). That kept us busy for all of 2012 plus chunks of 2011 and 2013 as well. We’d link you to the podcasts but many of them seem to have gotten lost in some sinister time slip. Don’t worry. We revisited the whole thing one record at a time here at Randophonic.com.  And we may get those podcasts re-posted eventually.
