This is a recording of the launch of Clare FM, one of the new licensed services in the post-pirate era.
The date is September 10th 1989 and Ger Sweeney introduced listeners to the new station.
Last year to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the launch, Ger Sweeney published a hugely-recommended book called “Launching Clare FM” which told the stories of all that were there on day one.
It’s a historical record of a unique event and will be of interest to anyone interested in Irish radio.
Here’s a chance to read the book that accompanies the Radio Retro recording!!!
Copies of the book, which Ger will sign if requested, can be ordered by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or via PayPal to the same address.
