Lynsey Dolan from Q102 and presenter/voice-over Enda Caldwell are part of the launch line-up on a new online radio station from the UK.
They’re both on the schedule of United DJs along with former BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show presenter Mike Read, former Radio Luxembourg presenter Tony Prince, plus Emperor Rosko, David Hamilton, Dave Lee Travis, Shaun Tilley and many more.
Lynsey hosted a show on the first day from 1pm till 3pm, and will be on each Monday, whilst Enda Caldwell is on at 10pm each weeknight. Both have worked in the Irish radio industry for many years with Lynsey previously at Sunshine, Q and Clare FM and Enda being known for Atlantic 252, Today FM and Luxembourg.
Founder Tony Prince says: “Just like the Pirate era the people who became DJs out of their love for music will shape United DJs Radio. I also have certain non-DJs with fabulous A&R skills recommending new music. The DJs on UDJ can play just what they like within a format of a 7-decade mix but they must play an element of new music releases. The DJs are in effect their own programme director.
“We are a radio team who are right behind the music industry and hope that our global attitude to streaming radio, will have a positive impact for everyone. At this time we have no interest in FM or DAB and are convinced, the moment the internet streamed into the car radio, the radio once again faces an enormous game changer.”
Tony appeared on the RadioToday Programme to talk about the new venture recently, and you can hear the launch below from Monday morning.
