TRAVEL FM

Travel FM was one of the more unique stations to broadcast in Dublin. On air on a temporary basis in 1999 the station was a collaboration between Dublin Corporation and the Gardaí which broadcast traffic news around the clock – with music aired in off-peak hours.

The station ran for 8 weeks from May 10th on 106.8MHz. Unlike any other station, Travel FM opted to to use a live presenter. Instead, the station used a number of pre-recorded voices (including Bob Gallico) who had recorded thousands of stock words and phrases which were pieced together to provide on-air updates.
