    Default Raidió Rí-Rá on FM

    It wouldn't cost a lot and would be greatly valued by the growing number of young Irish speakers.

    Just like Michael D. Higgins is fondly known by Irish speakers as the man who brought in TG4 Pat Rabbitte will I believe be fondly known as the man who brought in Raidió Rí-Rá on FM nationally I believe if he gives the station a license. To be fair to him though I don't think they have, yet, made an application for one. But, still, he could demonstate his approval for the idea! Thoughts?

    How do you know it wouldn't cost a lot? Would the demand for it be there? I like RnG the way it is-why can't the kids listen to that?

    The Christian radio station Spirit FM is broadcast nationally (in the biggest cities anyway, I think) and they are run (mostly anyway) by volunteers. I would not given the financial situation we are in be in favour of having all the presenters be paid. Raidió na Life in Dublin only has three full time staff members and the station is broadcast all over Dublin and to parts of some neighbouring counties. I think, and Raidió na Life could do with another full-time staff member, that Raidió Rí-Rá could be brodcast nationally with only 4-5 full time staff members.

    Raidió Rí-Rá is a chart music station and having a license on FM would mean that they would brodcast chart music only throughout the day. They wouldn't be officially a community radio station like Raidió na Life and Raidió Fáilte etc.

    That, I'm afraid, is why the kids won't listen to it. RnaG is the Radio 1 of Irish language broadcasting.

    Yeah, I know. But what's the point in listening to rubbish English language pop songs on an Irish language radio station?
