About Us

PhaseOne Radio is the only youth run radio station based in the heart of North East Cheshire.

Part of the Canalside Community Network, PhaseOne offers young people aged between 11 – 25 the very best in New and Chart music, the latest news relating to a number of different topics e.g. Films, Games and Books, a full round-up of all the upcoming gigs, cinema releases and nightlife activities in Cheshire.

Lots of opportunities exist to become part of a professional and dedicated team by training to become a presenter or part of our events team.

PhaseOne Radio has been streaming on the internet since 2011 under the former name of CY4Y Radio and changed its name in November 2012.

PhaseOne launched in style at Cabin 5150 in Macclesfield, followed by the after party at Dry Bar in Manchester on 16th November 2012 and played host to a number of the stations well known local musicians like: Hatty Keane, The Ordinary, The Northern Scene, Just Morgan & Joe Thomas.

The idea behind the station came at a time of change in Macclesfield and the realisation there was very little for young people to do in and around the town. A new radio station offering young persons every opportunity in media, and lots more besides, sounded the best way for the community to look forward.

Now with an established listenership, and strong support from the community, PhaseOne is still going strong over the internet airwaves. The station offers so much scope that more and more people want to get involved with this fantastic project and help its continued evolution.
