THE ANORAK HOUR #337

This is edition number 337 of Phantom FM’s iconic programme presented by Ger Roe and Pete Reed as broadcast on December 8th 2002.

The first archive recording this week is the second short programme from George Long of irishpirates.com. This time around there’s a brief history of Dublin’s superpirate Energy 103.

Last Tuesday, RTÉ Radio 1’s Joe Duffy Show was given over to the controversy surrounding Radio Kilkenny’s loss of licence to KCLR – The Heart of the Two Counties. Sampled here are some of the contributions from people directly involved.

Next, K.I.C. FM – one of the most powerful Dublin pirate stations of this millenium so far – was brought to its knees by the ODTR in the summer of 2001. The station was forced off the air following a raid on their mountain site, but using a makeshift aerial setup from their city centre location, they were back on air within a week. This recording samples the first live output from their return.

As usual, Pete Reed finishes the show with a look at this week’s news.
