Radio Carousel

Co Louth’s Radio Carousel appeared from Dundalk on 265 metres on May 20th 1978.
Started by Hugh Hardy, the name came about during a phone call to Kieran Murray who spotted a record called ‘Carousel’ in Big D’s library during the call. Murray’s was the first voice on air. The station was a runaway success.
