Wicklow Regatta Radio

Wicklow Regatta Radio was set up in 1982 to cover the local festival on 1512kHz. In the two years previous both RTÉ and Dublin’s Community Radio Co Op had run two week stations and for 1982, three local lads felt they could do as good a job, if not better, and set up with a plan to launch a full-time station, which became known as Wickow Community Radio.
