Who we are...
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 /
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 will be available on demand for a full week
after the live show has finished through the LISTEN link for
your listening pleasure at your own convenience.
