RadioSonic was a Canadian radio program, which aired on CBC Radio 2 from 1997 to 2003.[1]

RadioSonic, which aired on Saturday evenings, was originally created by combining two predecessor programs, David Wisdom's Night Lines and Leora Kornfeld's Realtime.[1] Both Wisdom and Kornfeld initially remained as cohosts of the new program, which profiled Canadian indie rock and alternative music, until Kornfeld left the show to pursue academic studies in England at the end of the 1999 season and Wisdom became the sole host.

In 2001, producer and contributor Grant Lawrence became the host of the program.[1] During this era, the CBC's new media division was launching the CBC Radio 3 webcasting project, and in 2003 RadioSonic was integrated into and renamed CBC Radio 3.[1]

With the evolution of Radio 3 into a satellite radio station in 2005, the Saturday evening program on CBC Radio 2 became a simulcast of the satellite network until it was discontinued from Radio Two on March 17, 2007. However, the satellite radio network is still patterned to a significant degree on RadioSonic's old format and style.
