Programme #5 (January 2017)

On this edition of Wireless on Flirt FM, historian Eddie Bohan tells us about the development of legal independent radio in Ireland since 1989. We profile the new Galway Irish language station Raidió na dTreabh. From Barcelona we hear the story of one of the city’s long-standing pirate stations Contrabanda FM. And as Norway switches off FM, US radio academic John Anderson discusses the challenges facing digital radio formats.
