Radio Caroline Dublin [90s]


Radio Caroline Dublin


Radio Caroline Dublin were an alternative music station with an alternative ideology who broadcast from a north Dublin suburb from January 1992. They also ran shortwave tests at one point.

In their later years, equipment difficulties and visits from the authorities as a result of over-modulation affecting a licensed newcomer, forced a change in policy and Radio Caroline ceased in 2000.

A total rethink led to WXTC in late 2000.
