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 Bluesrock Radio.

Presented by Maarten Goossensen through June 2022, and by Marcel Debets from September that same year until June 2023, it covered recent releases as well as classics and rarities from the genre's rich history. The future of Symfo Mania is currently uncertain.

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 ).
