Freedom FM are to make a return to Dublin’s FM band from September 18th. The former pirate station, who returned as an online outfit last year, will broadcast for thirty days consecutively under a temporary licence granted by the BAI. It will also be available in Cork, Limerick and Galway.
Freedom FM first appeared in March 1995, broadcasting from a garden shed in Templeogue. It ran until the infamous Black Tuesday raids of May 2003.
The majority of the old familiar names will be involved with the new Freedom FM, which will broadcast on 105.2MHz in Dublin and on different frequencies in the other broadcast areas.
