This is edition number 343 of Phantom FM’s iconic programme presented by Ger Roe and Pete Reed as broadcast on January 19th 2003.
The Anorak Hour from Phantom FM
This week’s show starts with a couple of listener requests. First, various memories from ESG FM – the successor to dance station Pulse 103 – are sampled. Following that, there’s a lookback to early recordings from the station that recently finished life as Hits 106FM. First of all from 1983 when it was known as Dublin South Community Radio; then into the 90s with two samples under the call-sign DLR FM.
2FM was 21 years of age in May 2000. Gerry Ryan remembers – sort of – his beginnings on the station in this recording.
From August 1980, Richard Davis on Radio Dublin is featured next in an with a local band interview.
In September 1997, the IRTC’s Chief Executive Michael O’Keeffe was interviewed by Richard Crowley on RTÉ Radio 1 about upcoming licences, pirate activity, and the problems at Radio Ireland.
Finally in this week’s archive section, some influential Radio Nova (and related) memories are given an airing.
Pete Reed finishes the show with a look at this week’s news.
