Power 98


Power 98


Launched in December 1986 as SoundChannel FM, Power 98 broadcast for the final time on December 30th 1988 from their studios at 78 O’Connell Street in Limerick city on 98.7MHz.

The name-change came about in mid-1988 following extensive research which also saw a switch in output from SoundChannel’s ‘general entertainment’ style, to a more adult music format.

The station ceased broadcasting in December 1988 due to new legislation.
