Inishowen Community Radio is a wholly community-owned and run radio
Our brief is to Inform, Educate and Entertain.
We are an inclusive organisation, committed to the development of
our community and the promotion
of Inishowen both within its borders
and beyond, and won the Broadcast Media Award in the 2006 MAMAs (Media
and Multicultural Awards) for our “China Times” programme.
As part of our broadcasting licence, ICRFM may broadcast up to 50%
of its output as music.
Our presenters have a passion for the music they play ad provide an
alternative to the increasingly restricted playlists of other stations
to cater to a very broad range of
musical taste from Classical, Blues, and Rock ‘n Roll to Traditional,
Folk, and the
latest Clubbing sounds.
