Phantom FM: Metal Notes Final Broadcast Announced
Well you’ve probably all heard the news over the past few days about Phantom FM. Due to falling revenues, the station has announced most people are to be let go from the station, a possible name change and a move to pre-programed playlists. Basically a glorified Spotify except you can’t choose the music.
The saddest part for metal fans is the beloved 2 hours on a Monday we all bask in is coming to an end. DJ Ray McGowan has hosted Metal Notes for many years and given opportunities for local bands to stand shoulder to shoulder with more established international acts. Considering there are very few outlets that make that possible in this country, this will be a major loss.
Ray, thank you for all the times I listened to the show. Despite you not responding to my first ever shout out on Facebook last week I w0n’t hold it against you. Seriously though you will be missed by a lot of metal heads in the country and thank you for everything you’ve done for the scene.
The final Metal Notes will be broadcast on March 10th. Make sure you tune in and wish the team well.
Ray this is for you,
