A little history
On 18th September 1997, Radio Phoenix was destroyed by fire. True to its mythical name, Radio Phoenix literally rose from the ashes, better than ever. Since then, through accurate, controlled and workable systems, the station has been of assistance in training the staff of up and coming local community and commercial radio stations throughout Zambia and surrounding regions.Radio Phoenix frequencies
