In honour of some of the finest presenters to ever grace the airwaves of Dublin's Phantom 105.2 — or any radio station for that matter — I have curated a collection of recordings of show finales. Unfortunately, there were an inordinate number of shows ending in September of 2012, mostly involuntarily. I won't get into discussing the demise of Phantom, except to say that these shows and their presenters will be greatly missed by many. In addition to the September finales, I went ahead and included a few older finales, including the one that's quite possibly the most heartbreaking of them all. That being the last broadcast by one of Phantom's pioneers, Simon Maher.
