Recordings featuring Derek Jones

Q102

The closedown of Dublin pirate Q102 in December 1988, necessitated by the introduction of new laws outlawing pirate radio.

This recording is off 102.3MHz FM and features pretty much everyone who was ever involved with the station in a broadcast full of reminiscing which starts at 2.20pm.

WXTC

Take a trip back in time to take a trip back in time with Derek Jones on WXTC. His show is Old Gold Retold and this recording of the Dublin station starts at 10.20am off 91.6MHz.

Note: WXTC used to relay BBC Radio 5 Live in its downtime, hence the snippet of live football at the end of the recording.
