Irish pirate radio history

This month's Wireless on Flirt FM features aspects of the history of the Irish pirate radio era of the 1970s and 1980s.

2018 is the 30th anniversary of the closure of the pirates in anticipation of new broadcasting legislation.

The programme features an interview with Irish radio historian Eddie Bohan on a new exhibition on the pirates to open in Dublin in May, and an interview with veteran broadcaster David Baker who worked in various Dublin stations in the 1980s and went on to radio in the UK.
