Sunshine Radio

Robbie Robinson is no longer with us

Robbie Robinson, the man who founded and operated Sunshine Radio in Dublin for eight years, passed away yesterday in Lanzarote at the age of 81. Regarded as one of the most influential people on the development of Irish radio, Robbie was devastated when he closed down Sunshine Radio on December 30th 1988 but failed to secure one of the new licences which many within the industry felt Sunshine Radio were certain to get. Close friends and colleagues felt he never recovered from this blow.
