From September 23rd 2005 this is a recording of the notorious Dublin pirate Splash FM. This station was eventually closed by the Gardaí amid accusations of promoting joyriding and giving tips on how to steal cars. Based in Finglas, Splash FM broadcast on 93.8MHz.
Unfortunately, this recording highlights the perils of unattended recording. It suffers from severe spatter from RnaG who were strong on 93.5MHz and on 94.0MHz We recommend listening to the airchecked version but we have also included the full recording for those who wish to get a feel for the station’s output.

As part of their final weekend of broadcasting to Dublin under their present temporary licence Irish Music Radio will host a special two hour discussion show looking at radio past and present this Sunday. Presented by Joe Doyle, the show, which will be broadcast as part of the station’s ‘Meltdown’, will be aired live at 1pm this Sunday on 94.9MHz FM. Contributing to the discussion will be Phantom FM’s Ger Roe, Dr Don of A.R.D/Radio Dublin fame, FM104’s Andy Preston, 98FM’s Barry Dunne, David Baker of Klas/Heartbeat fame, Premier FM’s Paul Shepherd and Chris Adams of Irish Music Radio.
