DUBLIN'S PIRATE DAYS

A NEW SIX PART SERIES HAS BEGUN TO AIR ON DUBLIN COMMUNITY TELEVISION.
This six part interview series looks at the momentous moments as the new Wireless Telegraphy Act came into force at midnight on December 31st 1988 and closed the majority of the pirate radio stations that were dotted across the country. In the series we chat to some of those iconic names in pirate radio many of whom are still on the air today. We hear stories of guns being put to DJ's heads at Big D, The US Ambassador to Lebanon rescuing Radio Dublin DJ's who found themselves in a war zone, the raids, the fun, the postman who was arrested just because he was delivering post to a radio station as it was being raided. The characters some of whom are no longer with us but are fondly remembered. Tune in each Friday at 7 on UPC Channel 802, Dublin Community Telelvision, AERTV or on Vimeo.
