Energy 103

The first day of broadcasts from Energy 103.

On Sunday April 27th 1986, 103.1MHz and 738kHz in Dublin had lit up with continuous music tests, presumed to be the return of Zoom 103 – the station owned by former Nova employees – which had broadcast for just a few days following the closure of Radio Nova on March 19th.

The unidentified tests returned on Monday April 28th, this time on 103.0MHz and 738kHz. Following a couple of hours of continuous music, the station went live at around 2pm and identified as Energy 103.

Richard Jackson was the first jock on the air and this recording has the very first presenter ID and then has Richard’s show in full.

At 4pm Tony McKenzie takes over the reins.
