About Xanthe Bearman

Busy mum of 3! I first went on air at Phoenix FM back in February 2006 co-presenting a weekend show. When the station went live, I presented a daily show called "The Bear At Lunchtime". My love of 80's music bought me back to Phoenix FM after a few years break and I now present GR80's.
