Dublin chart music station Freedom 92FM announced today that they were to close. The shock announcement was made on this afternoon’s Mike O’Brien show and the station were flooded with phone-calls, texts and emails from distraught listeners.
“Some of the listeners were in tears,” Mike told Radiowaves News. It was later admitted that it was an April Fool’s Day hoax.
