About Music One
So where did it all begin?
The idea that Ireland had no music station catering for mature tastes has long been a bone of contention. There was also the fact that the existing FM stations seem to have reduced the amount of songs they play to the low hundreds and in some cases seem to have given up focusing on music at all. It's been a long time coming. We promise Proper music radio and we'll leave nothing out. The music we know you love and LOTS of it. We plan to grow with you so please let us know what you think in the poll on the right. We're all ears but we are especially interested in yours!!
Music One will be launching on July 5th at 9am. Finally.. PROPER Music Radio
Music One Ireland is now on your favourite streaming services and available on Apple and Google apps, Amazon Alexa and Google Hello
