8Radio.com is the brainchild of Simon Maher, one of the founders and the public face of Phantom FM. He said: “We are delighted to be returning to FM again this year, giving people the chance to be exposed to the dark side of music radio that is 8Radio.com! 8Radio.com has built a brilliant team of more than 20 presenters and support staff , all of whom have a love of music and radio and this passion and enthusiasm comes across on air. At 8Radio.com we realise that radio stations have to change with the times and that’s why we have tailored our station to deliver something unique and compelling.
“There should be nothing revolutionary about playing Talking Heads followed by Sylvan Esso followed by The Blades at Breakfast. We play the music we like and it’s just the natural thing to do. Trust your audience and they will trust you!”
