Spanish 'pirates' taken off air

THE oldest radio station on the Costa del Sol has been forced to shut down.
Radio fans are upset after discovering that the 24-year-old (English language) station Coastline FM will be taken off the air tonight (Feb 28)  at 6pm.
Bosses at the radio station, based in the Axarquia, admitted that they had been forced to take the decision after being ordered to stop transmitting by the Junta.
