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. Please do like us. Not only will it make us feel better but it’s probably the best way to stay on top of day-to-day Randophonic action.
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, 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?
Randophonic radio is currently in hiatus, sort of. We’re still broadcasting most weeks, but the shows are reruns, plucked from our rather copious archives. There are various reasons for this, a key one being that we’re actually pretty happy with those archives. There’s a pile of solid radio in there that most folks didn’t hear the first time around, so why not revisit?
There is also a Movie of the Week pretty much every week. These are, for the most part, uninterrupted almost hour long mixes — movies without pictures. They’re also mostly coming from the archives of late.
Recently (up until February 2019) Randophonic’s main focus was The Final Countdown*, our longest, most random and (if we were doing it right, and there’s some doubt there — there’s always doubt!) relevant countdown yet. Which is rather a long of way saying, we’re still not one hundred percent sure what it’s all about. But we will get back to it in time. Definitely before the world ends. In the meantime, the first twenty-five installments are available for your listening pleasure.
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’re currently revisiting the whole thing one record at a time, one day at a time, here at Randophonic.com. And we’ll probably get the podcasts re-posted eventually.
