ALL SMILES AND EASY LISTENING
Broadcasting from Sandyford with offices located at Herbert St in Dublin’s city centre, the station focused on a more middle of the road music and speech output.
It was set up by Danny Hughes with the backing of a number of businessmen.
The station lasted for two tears, closing on May 1983 at the time of the infamous raids on Radio Nova and Sunshine. Although they themselves were not raided, Radio Leinster closed for fear of losing their equipment. They never returned.
