Splash FM

Splash FM September 23rd 2005

From September 23rd 2005 this is a recording of the notorious Dublin pirate Splash FM. This station was eventually closed by the Gardaí amid accusations of promoting joyriding and giving tips on how to steal cars. Based in Finglas, Splash FM broadcast on 93.8MHz.

Unfortunately, this recording highlights the perils of unattended recording. It suffers from severe spatter from RnaG who were strong on 93.5MHz and on 94.0MHz We recommend listening to the airchecked version but we have also included the full recording for those who wish to get a feel for the station’s output.
