Magic Forced to Disappear

“The day we thought would never come arrived this Halloween,” a spokesperson for Magic FM in Limerick told Radiowaves News this evening. “We’ve had an official visit from the ODTR to the transmitting site issuing a warning to ‘cease the illegal broadcasting immediately or face prosecution’. We’ve decided to do what they’ve asked.”
Magic FM were an alternative rock station on 107.6MHz. They issued the following statement: “To all who’ve tuned our way in Limerick we want to say thanks. Thanks also to everyone involved in running the station over the past three years. Thanks to all at Radiowaves for the insight into what was going on around the country. Basically thanks to everyone who was involved, either directly or indirectly. We’ll miss the crack that was to be had.”
