THE RADIO OF REVOLUTION
Radio Free Belfast was established in 1969 by the Peoples’ Democracy and the Belfast Citizen’s Defence Committee. It broadcast political statements and traditionalist Republican music from The Falls Road area of the city. It was run by left-wingers against a backdrop of civil unrest and broadcast anti-British sentiments and anti-Unionist propaganda.
The station was located above the Long Bar and began broadcasting on 244m. It later moved to 300m to avoid interference.
