There were two factions within Big D when it formed following the mass defection from Radio Dublin in April 1978. The crew who’d come from Radio Dublin and others who’d joined from ARD. Although there was no acrimony, there were, however, different ideas on how to run a station. It was from this that two different schedules were drawn up. One for Big Dm which would run during the week, and the other for Big D Weekend, which would go to air, not surprisingly, at weekends from Friday until the early hours of Monday mornings.
Big D Weekend boasted a healthy array of talent which included the likes of Declan Meehan, Gerry Ryan, John Clarke, Marty Whelan and Mark Storey.
