Xymphonia is a weekly, two hour radio show broadcasted on the local public radio station of Almelo, a town in the Eastern part of Holland, some 20 miles from the German border. Being in its nineteenth consecutive year, it has become the longest running prog show on public radio in Holland. The program is produced by Christian Bekhuis , Herman Beunk , Maurice Dam, Aldwin Gerritsen and René Yedema who try to give a wide perspective on progressive, melodic and symphonic rock both from the past and the present with the occasional excursions into the territory of progressive pop, jazzrock, progressive metal and folk / singer-songwriter.
One of the trademarks of Xymphonia is the extensive coverage of the newest releases. But of course the big names and the smaller heroes of the classic progressive rock genre are not forgotten. Recurring items in the show are the gig guide, news items and forgotten gems from progressive rock’s past.
Every Sunday evening the show is broadcast on local radio Omroep Almelo from 8 pm CET. If you do not live in the near vicinity of Almelo you can now listen to our show through the internet. The current program is available on demand for a full week after the live show.
