#8Turns8 and returns to FM!
8Radio.com is brought to listeners through a variety of platforms, including live Internet streaming, Smartphone Applications, an Alexa skill for Smart Speakers, TuneIn radio and also via a series of Temporary FM licenses. 8Radio.com is delighted to confirm that we will be broadcasting on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on FM to Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway from October 22nd to November 21st 2021 and again in Spring 2022.
These broadcasts are to celebrate 8 Years of 8Radio.com playing the music we like! By broadcasting on FM, 8Radio.com believes there is an opportunity to further strengthen its audience and drive traffic towards its online presence. Additionally and importantly, it is hoped that these temporary FM broadcasts and the ongoing development of 8Radio.com will lead to the opportunity to apply for a full-time terrestrial broadcast licence using a business model designed to make the operation of independently owned niche radio stations financially viable while providing quality Alternative music output. 8Radio is also actively pursuing DAB Digital Radio carriage options for 2022 and beyond.
Speaking about 8Radio.com and it’s return to FM, Managing Director Simon Maher said:
“The last 18 months has been a struggle at 8Radio.com, just as it has been for so many businesses in the music space. We’re delighted to have made it through this challenging period and now we’re looking forward to getting to celebrate 8 years of making Indie radio and planning for the future. The technology and the media environment may have changed dramatically in the 8 years since 8Radio.com launched but the buzz of getting to introduce a great new track to an interested audience is still the same. Everyone at 8Radio.com puts in the work because they believe in what the radio station is about and it’s a privilege to be part of that.”
8Radio.com is brought to listeners with the support of our title sponsors Whelans Live Music Venue who have been on board since the station launched on Camden Row in 2013.
People often ask us about our philosophy, our USP and all that stuff. We sum it up this way: “We are black, we are white, we just say it, we just play music we like. We are uncomplicated, we don’t try to be cool, we just are who we are, people will like us or they won’t like us and that’s ok. We enjoy what we do, we share what we do, it’s not complicated, it’s so simple, its just 8. And in a world of complication and having to think and being shouted at isn’t it nice to just be with someone as simple and lovely as 8?”
