Dublin's ABC 94 FM's (aka ABC Radio Ireland) was started by Paul Barrett and first began broadcasting on 25th September (4pm), 1995 using a low powered transmitter and with pre-recorded programmes on 94.2 and 88 FM. At first 88FM was the main frequency and 94.2 FM was the link ,we changed this when we moved to the office's as 94.2 got out better to the city and county. The station operated from an office block in Dublins city centre and it wasnt long before live programmes were introduced.
ABC's format mainly to play pop music with a high content of oldies "Memories from the 60's to the 90's" which very few other stations were doing. We also broadcast other types of music in the evenings, including rock, reggae, jazz, traditional and Irish music,dance, indie and classical to name but a few.
