Meet our Volunteers – Sylvano Mbatu

Tell us what convinced you to join Phoenix FM?

My background is Radio and Television, so when I arrived in Ireland, the second person I met, through a friend told me about Phoenix FM. By just mentioning that there’s a community radio station not far from where I stay (Corduff), I was excited so much that I couldn’t wait for the following day to come and see the station. That evening I searched the station online and listened to the programme on air, then I also did the same in the morning and got a chance to listen into D15 In The Morning. I immediately felt represented, since I live in Dublin 15 and thought I would be happy to be part of the Phoenix FM family.

How has your time with Phoenix FM been?

It’s been a great journey to be honest. One year down the line, I still feel excited whenever I come to the studio, it’s like I have just started. I loved the way I was welcomed and got easily introduced into the programming, first with D15 In The Morning and then with Afro Vibe show. I still look forward to making Afro Vibe show have a huge impact not only to the station but also to the community around us.
