RTE considers closing Lyric FM

Post by Tim Bucknall » 13 Sep 2019 16:37

Not good at all
I have precious little choice on the dial without losing Lyric FM’s eclectic offering

As an Irish friend pointed out on twitter Lyric’s listenership are articulate and could mount an effective campaign

Assuming the dirty deed is done
I imagine 95.2 would have more regular reception of Cornwall and I might get radio Cumbria back

98.7 and 99.1 could be useful Transatlantic channels

I might get the Birmingham CR newstyle regularly

I'd say they're going to privatise the lot just like they did in Denmark with FM4, 24syv instead of DR P2. Unless this gets somehow stopped by the unavoidable outcry, which I think is the most likely option.
Probably scanning the band atm. And definitely moaning about the conditions.
