That Olden Peach: The History and Legend of Dublin Pirate Radio

This is the story of pirate radio in Dublin from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. Surrounded by rumour and testimony, this history has never before been documented and is done so here with a narrative that ventures through both cultural critique and personal experience. A meeting point for testimony and fact, this story exposes a myriad of cultural tensions in Ireland using the lives of two successful pirate radio stations as its spine.
