90s radio station to cease FM broadcasting

Much hyped pirate radio station non-stop 90s is closing down its transmitters today after a year of broadcasting across much of Ireland.

At 7pm on Bank Holiday Monday 31st October 2016 the station – heard on 107.1FM in Dublin, 104.2FM in the North East, 87.7FM in the North West, 1494AM in Dublin and 6205SW across Ireland and the UK – will turn the TXs off.

RadioToday understands a number of legal stations in Dublin have been complaining about the station, campaigning for it to be closed down for fear of them taking revenue away.

The programme schedule, according to its website, includes Enda Caldwell at breakfast, Vinny S, Ronan Devitt, Louise Jordan, Ter Fitz and John Troy on Lates. Weekends included Greg James, Mark Byrne, Tracy Lee and Gary Cruz.

Non-Stop 90s has a purpose built studio and has built up a large following and profit since it started.

Stay tuned to RadioToday for a special revealing feature looking back at the station from our reporter Dave Miller, next week.

    Says a lot for a pirate station that there is an article about it on a website that is mainly aimed at the legals. I’d say this will annoy the legal PD’s as much as they wanted this pirate shut down so badly!!

    Other radio stations were afraid they would lose revenue, have they not got the hint that not everybody likes the two gobshites on FM104 in the morning making those stupid insipid phone calls that they think are amusing or that we want to listen to music from the 60’s and 70’s. Lets hope they will get their license soon as it is on the internet , sometimes it is hard to listen to it as of right now March 19th , its not on the air.
