Now, That's What I Call Local Radio!

In the 1980s, when many pirate stations featured Top 40 music and mid-Atlantic accents, John Frawley's Limerick station, 'Raidíó Luimní' understood that it was the 'local' bit in local radio that mattered: news, gossip, connecting with the community around you.

This is a short documentary made for the RTE Radio programme, 'Soundbyte' in 1994.

Produced by Ronan Kelly
