    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.

    Cheers.

    Long days, slow replies!

    Yes, we will be getting back to everyone we interviewed. The successful ones we will be calling on the phone and the others will be contacted by post as soon as possible. We have a fair bit to get through though so it might take a while!

    For now, sleep, long day tomorrow!

    Hi Pete
    I know someone who got a show so does that mean that all the presenter gigs have been filled?

    Hi there,

    Nope, doesnt mean that just yet. We are filling shows as we progress through shortlisting etc but I cant imagine us having all the slots filled before late next week. Some roles are easier to fill than others as you can imagine. And all the time, the pages keep getting torn off the calendar on the desk....

    Kind Regards,

    Hi DMC,

    Test transmissions will start as soon as we get contract stuff signed with the BCI. Probably just a few days before launch (on 105.2 for those who still dont know!). Yes, certainly we will be looking for reception reports and Im sure Sir Gerard will be delighted to get them! We should be able to tell more about dates, times and programmes after next Wednesday when we get some bits sorted. 17 days to go! Panic? Never.

    Kind Regards,

    Hey Pete just thought I would ask, are you going to get contact information for the station out before launch (text numbers and all that)?


  • Registered Users Posts: 569 ✭✭✭Phoenix3


    Hi Pete,Just wondering will there be any room in the schedule for anorak material in some form or other?

    Best Wishes

    this will probably be the biggest audience ever to tune into a "brand new" station at the very start!

    Cannae wait

    was just tuning in my tv with rabbit ears in greystones and i'm getting phantom about 2 thirds of the way through the VL band (on TV).

    Was listening for about ten minutes - fuzzy screen (No pics etc) but perfect sound - could hear "this is phantom fm 105.2 on a test transmission" :)
