Symfo Mania Playlist Archive

Symfo Mania was the weekly special covering symphonic and progressive rock music, broadcast every Tuesday evening on Dutch website/DAB+ Arrow Bluesbox Radio.
The show originated (🏛) on Dutch national radio station Arrow Classic Rock around 2001, but had to move after their specials were cancelled per December 8, 2020.

Presented by Maarten Goossensen until June 2022, it covers recent releases as well as classics and rarities from the genre's rich history.

This site collects the show's playlists from 2016 onwards, and aims to (eventually) provide browsing, searching and statistics features to the show's fans, in (eventually) a modern responsive layout. And it'll be appear in Dutch too (eventually ).
