Dublin's Good Times

98FM has a brand new look, a new sound and some new faces joining the station.

Samantha Mumba joins to present her very own Saturday night music show, Good Time Anthems, kicking off this weekend.

The Gotta Tell You chart topper will bring 98FM listeners the best of Old Skool and contemporary Dance and R&B Anthems.

On the news, Samantha Mumba said: “I’m beyond excited to be joining the team at 98FM.

"As someone who grew up listening to the station and literally calling in with song requests so I could record them on my tape recorder this is a lovely full circle!”

Leanne Hanafin moves to weekday evenings, while Níamh Ní Chróinín and Andy Gleeson join the weekend schedule.

As well as landing a new Saturday show, Níamh will also host a revamped Totally Irish show on 98FM (Sundays 9-11pm) which will focus on playing the best Old Skool & Anthems made here in Ireland, while introducing you to the freshest new Irish sounds and some classic live performances.

Karl Dawson can now be heard every Saturday and Sunday morning on 98FM waking up Dublin from 7-10am.

Commenting on this new position for 98FM, James Brownlow, Managing Editor, Music & Entertainment, Bauer Media Audio Ireland said: “With Dublin’s Good Times, 98FM is for a Dublin audience who, in the noughties, were out discovering life, having their first big relationships, holidays, responsibility free and just living their best life!

"As the country feels like it’s heading towards the Good Times again, we’re bringing a format to the market that is super focused on delivering nothing but Good Time anthems and experiences all day every day."

The new schedule will come into effect this weekend - listen on air, online or on your smart speaker!
