Radio Igloo 26th of June 2020

Englisch
at least that's our own opinion.
On Friday next week, June 26th at 21.0 European Daylight Time (19.0 UTC) the Show will be transmitted from one of our shortwave transmitters in central Europe.
On 6285 kHz or on a free frequency nearby.
This program has been made possible because some of our listeners have helped us with the show and our broadcasting engineer who makes sure it comes on air.
We hope you will enjoy our music-show.
We appreciate to hear from you and audioclips are always welcome.
Greetings from
The Radio Igloo Team radioigloo@gmail.com

Irish pirate radio audio archive

The Irish pirate radio audio archive was lucky to recently receive a donation of hundreds of cassettes belonging to the British radio enthusiast Leon Tipler who made valuable recordings of the Irish pirate scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. We've begun digitising the collection, starting with Tipler's acclaimed documentary series 'The Irish Pirates' focusing on the period 1979-1982. Many of the stations involved would have been heard by British DXers. The first part of 'The Irish Pirates' can be heard here:

We also recently featured the pirate radio of Galway in the 1980s:
