In those early days there was a small section for current industry news and bandscans from the present day. These regularly updated sections quickly took off, proving extremely popular with visitors.
As an independent site Radiowaves.FM does not have a policy regarding the status of any radio station – for us radio is radio and our aim is to reflect the radio industry as it happens and develops in Ireland.
Over the years the site has vastly expanded and is now a one-stop shop for information on radio in Ireland, whether historical or contemporary.
Please enjoy your time on our site and don’t forget to drop us a line with updates or feedback.
On the right there is a brief introduction to the different sections…
Check out our newspage for the latest industry updates which includes the latest newspaper stories. There is also an extensive archive of past news stories.
