Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions

How can I listen to Phantom Circuit?

New editions are made available for you to hear via on-demand streaming on this site soon after their first broadcast on Resonance Extra. See the list of all shows on this site or visit Phantom Circuit’s page on Mixcloud.com. And please follow Phantom Circuit on Mixcloud if you would like to be told whenever a new show can be heard!

New editions of Phantom Circuit are first broadcast by radio station Resonance Extra every Thursday at 11 pm UK time. This may vary on rare occasions, according to the station’s changing scheduling needs.

You can listen to Resonance Extra’s live stream on its Web site as well as on many popular radio stream aggregator sites. It can also be heard over DAB radio in the UK in Brighton & Hove, London, Bristol, Norwich and Cambridge.

Resonance Extra archives Phantom Circuit and other shows it has broadcast in its Mixcloud channel  and on Soundcloud.

How can I find out about new editions of the show?

You can follow Phantom Circuit on Mixcloud or use one of the many social media options which are shown in the sidebar of this page.

Why can’t I download the shows instead of streaming them?

This is for copyright compliance. Shows are streamed via MixCloud, which has a licensing arrangement with the Performing Right Society for streaming only. Downloadable podcasts would require a different licensing arrangement (or the removal of nearly all the commercially released tracks) so someone would have to pay for that. Streaming means that Phantom Circuit can bring you a wide range of music for free.

Can I skip forwards and backwards through a show’s audio?

Yes, you can use the slider at the bottom of the Mixcloud audio player for each show.

In the USA (only!), you might not be able to move the slider backwards because of particular copyright agreements there.

Why can’t I go to the track by clicking on its name in the player?

Mixcloud has not designed its player to work like this (for various good reasons). In any case, Phantom Circuit is a radio show and is not like a jukebox or Spotify or iTunes. It’s meant to be listened to as a whole. Nevertheless, you can move the slider (see above) to move backwards and forwards in the show.
