Wired FM team up with LCCR for National Community Radio Day 2015

Limerick City Community Radio is a not-for-profit Community Radio Station for Limerick City and its environs.

The station was licenced by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland on 99.9FM at weekends on a 15-week temporary broadcasting licence from March to June 2014 and is currently broadcasting online with plans in place to return to FM later in the year.

The output of the station, under the terms of our broadcasting licence, is mainly talk-based with an emphasis on local news and community affairs.

On Friday, 19 June, Richard Smith from Limerick City Community Radio will present a special breakfast show on Wired FM between 9-10am for National Community Radio Day.

We caught up with Richard to have a little chat ahead of the show. Richard Smith
