MN.03.11.1982 Irish Radio from Pirate to Private

Media Network Vintage Vault 2019-2020

Release Date: 12/19/2018

A lot has been written and documented about the growth of UK Commercial Radio. Much less on the growth of commercial radio in Ireland to break the monopoly of the Irish public broadcaster RTE. In 1982, we ran quite a comprehensive survey of the situation in Dublin. The late John Campbell also gave us frequent updates as the pirates tried to provide an alternative.
