CBC (Clonmel Broadcasting Corporation) were based at Westgate, Clonmel in Co Tipperary and the station first appeared at noon on November 14th 1981.
It was a ‘community’-style station which played a good mixture of Irish, Folk, Classical and Celtic rock and had various programme strands such as movie reviews, legal advice, politics, religious and gardening.
Over 100 volunteers, along with a handful of part-time and full-time staff, contributed on the air.
CBC was logged on 98.9MHz and 362Mtrs in 1983, with a relay on 199mtrs serving Carrick-on-Suir.
