[Update to this post: Phantom Circuit did indeed return, in April 2015. Listen now…]
The third run of Phantom Circuit started with show #31 back in April 2010 and has been running since without interruption, so it’s probably about time for a break. Show #152 will therefore be the last for now.
Thanks to Mixcloud for providing the platform, to everyone who sent in music (whether or not it was possible to include it), to our featured artists (most of whom were very kind to this small internet radio presence), to everyone who spread the word and last but certainly not least to everyone who took the time to listen.
Each show took a lot of time to put together but it always felt a privilege to be able to share a tiny proportion of the amazing music out there. It was gratifying too when some otherwise overlooked artists said they were encouraged by the inclusion of their music. Also, the third series helped inspire some listeners to make their own shows and mixes (thankfully most imaginative enough to devise personalised, original formats) so if your music didn’t make it into Phantom Circuit or as a listener you were confused by what was played, there were a few more alternatives available. PC itself could only aim to improve, little by little…
If enough time can be found, Phantom Circuit may well return at some point in 2015, although perhaps on a less frequent or sustained basis. If you would like to be among the first to hear any news, join the email list or keep a close watch on the social media options.
