Radio Vanessa broadcast from Declan Meehan’s bedroom in Santry, Dublin in the early ’70s. Robbie Irwin was also involved. Probably not for the first time, nor the last, the station was named after a girl that they thought “was gorgeous”. Indeed, the personnel involved went on to bigger (and arguably, better) with the formation of Radio Milinda. Radio Vanessa returned for a few sporadic broadcasts in early 1974.
