    The Countdown has commenced ...

    It's official! Phantom 105.2 will launch on Tuesday, October 31st next. We thought that Halloween would be a rather apt day for us! The frequency, as you may have guessed will be 105.2 MHz and we will be available right across Dublin City and county and probably a good bit beyond. We'll have loads of announcements regarding presenters, programming and other stuff over the coming weeks so keep an eye here on the site or sign up for our newsletter today!

    IMPORTANT NOTE - RECRUITMENT: We will be calling those of you who are on our interview panel right through the week commencing September 18th. Please be patient, it may be towards the end of the week before you are contacted. If you are on our list we will make every effort to contact you. We are not taking any new applications at this time. Our recruitment page will have further information.

    At flippin last says you!

    This is great. Well well well done.

    Was watching an interview with Steve Carell recently, and they were discussing his fairly recent leap to stardom. Interviewer says "and it all happened so fast!". He replies "I know! It only took 22 years!!".

    Anyway, Steve sez:

    Happy Days!

    Hey Pete,

    Just a couple of questions regarding recruitment if you have a chance to answer them (which I've no doubt you haven't, but I'm going to chance it anyway!):
    Will you guys be getting back to everyone you interviewed, or just those who are successful? If so, when do you think it might be? Also, will you be contacting applicants by telephone or post?

    Hope you're all managing despite the insane busyness.
