About Xanthe Bearman

I'm a busy mum of three teenagers! I started working as a TV presenter in 2004 and in 2006 I joined Phoenix FM as a co-presenter. When the station went full time in March 2007, I presented the lunchtime show "The Bear at Lunchtime". I really enjoyed the show but when my own business (singing and dancing with pre-school children and babies) got too busy, I had to stand down. I was brought up in the 80s and LOVE the music of that decade so was delighted when I was asked to rejoin Phoenix FM in June 2014 to present a new weekly 80s show. I've been lucky enough to interview Mike Stock (Stock, Aitken & Waterman), Denise Pearson (Five Star) and Andy Bell (Erasure). I really enjoy choosing the tracks I'm going to play each week, there is a memory attached to nearly every one!
