Along with loads of other bloggers, I’ve had a chance to look around the new and improved 2fm website. It is far and away more pleasing than the old format, and is even better than the revamped 6.01!
“RTÉ 2fm is officially launching its new website tomorrow on RTÉ 2fm’s Colm & Jim-Jim Breakfast Show with a competition to win annual membership to The O2 Premium Club as well as a pair of tickets to every gig at The O2 for an entire year from April 08 to April 09. Anyone who registers on the site by Friday, 27th March automatically goes into the draw for the prize.”
With the new site, you can stream the shows as expected, but also see what song is being played right now, and what songs have been played earlier in the day. This is all on the frontpage. Many times have I been listening to the radio and thinking “What’s that song?” and waited for the DJ to name it at the end, but missed it for whatever reason. Now that’s no longer a problem, as album cover and track title appear instanteously. Also, each tune is linked to videos and bios from the artists, which is the best new feature. (So expect lots of links to Lady Gaga and U2 bios!)
Each presenter now should have a unique blog, which should make it very interesting. Imagine the nonsense Gerry Ryan will blog? Sure to cause a furore!
It’ll be interesting to see what happens when it all goes live tomorrow, but so far I’m loving it.
