Garvan Rigby

I am one of the co-founders of Christmas FM. Also known as ‘Gifting Garvan’, I am joint programme director focusing on the shows and music. I’m passionate about radio and particularly Christmas radio.

I have worked in radio for 20 years, starting off on the pirates. I was with Spirit Radio and 98FM in the past. I’m a DJ and I run my own DJ agency – Star DJs, Ireland’s largest DJ booking company.

I will appear on air this year presenting the breakfast show most mornings from 7am.

Why Christmas FM
Just because I love all things Christmas and as a co-founder of the station I guess I have to be involved and like the station! 🙂 Gifting Garvan is my name and doing Christmas Radio is my game....... or something like that!
