Polynomials orthogonal on the unit circle with random recurrence coefficients and finite band spectrum are investigated. It is shown that the coefficients are in fact quasi-periodic. The measures associated with these quasi-periodic coefficients are exhibited and necessary and sufficient conditions relating quasi-periodicity and spectral measures of this type are given. Analogs for polynomials orthogonal on subsets of the real line are also presented.
