Radio Free Belfast
« on: February 01, 2009, 02:53:42 PM »
Anyone out there remember this radio station set up early 70`s in the Falls.  When they were starting up they went rou nd the doors asking for any records anybody could LEND them.  Well when I was at work my mother gave them free run of my record collection including all of my Beatles 45`s and E P`s .  When I came home she told me she had lent them and they would bring them back not to worry.  How gullible can you be.   >:( >:(.. Yeah that`s right I never did see them again :( :( :( :( :(

If you were one of Radio Free Belfast's presenters would you please return the records you borrowed to mauram.

Did some of Belfast's pirate stations really operate from a phone box ???

Here mauram,    I think I saw your record collection up for auction on Ebay a couple of years ago O0  All the records that were  there, I remember you telling me you had them all.    The best of the  Muppetts,  Max Bygraves, Linga Banga Bong.  Ken Dodd, live at Knotty Ash, and of course Dolly Parton's greatest [censored].
If you don't do it you won't get caught.

Well, the Beatles were before my time as you know ::)  and you also know that I come from a musical background. I learned to play the piano by ear, until one day the lid fell on it.

THE MOST PLAYED RECORD WAS, JOE DOLANS MAKE ME AN ISLAND. ANOTHER TWO WERE  THE DUBLINERS  PEGGY GORDON, AND DIRTY OLD TOWN.  WHEN IT MOVED FROM THE DWYERS, IT WAS SET UP IN A GATEWAY NEXT TO O NEILLS BUTCHERS IN LEESON ST. THEN THERE WAS RADIO FREE SHANKILL.
