WLR is launching a brand new digital radio station playing nothing but Country and Irish music.
Absolute Irish Radio will broadcast from its base in Waterford 24 hours a day, seven days a week from today.
Michael Byrne, Programme Director at WLR, told RadioToday it’s a move that has been months in the planning, and all involved are now delighted to bring it to fruition.
“We’re finally ready to launch,” he said. “We have big plans to introduce some nice features, programmes and new presenters long-term. It’s a very exciting move by WLR and we have no doubt that this new station will prove hugely popular with country and Irish music fans, young and not so young!”
Absolute Irish Radio is playlisted to showcase the new and popular country artists whilst also playing classic Irish songs.
The station is available from today (Tuesday) online via the Irish Radioplayer app.
