A new station by the name of Energy Mix is due to appear in Galway in the next few days. It will be playing a mix of dance, ’90s music and today’s hits.
The station currently test-broadcasting on 106.5MHz in Galway are Energy Mix. The station says they hope to finally launch in the next two weeks.
Energy Mix, a new station which will be playing ’90s music and today’s hits in Galway, will launch within two weeks. The station activated a blank carrier on 106.5MHz early last week, but following a day off the air, found a relay of UCB had taken their place by Thursday.
Speaking to Radiowaves News today, a station spokesman said that they will be back on air this evening using the higher end of the band on a frequency to be confirmed.
“We had a specially-made package of jingles for 106.5MHz so we are understandably disappointed,” he said. “When we realised the UCB relay had turned up on 106.5, our plan was then to start on 106.3FM, but now that Mix 106 are on, we want to wish them the best of luck and hopefully we can work together with the ‘other Mix’ sometime in the future.”
Galway’s Energy Mix, who had been testing on 106.5MHz, have now shifted to 102.1MHz.
Power shortages in Galway city have forced Energy 102FM off the air this evening. The station say they will be off air periodically over the next few days due to technical work. Energy broadcast on 102.1MHz.
