About Galway Bay FM

Listen to the online radio of Galway Bay FM live, which began its broadcasting journey in 1989 under the name "Radio West". Radio West was the first legally operating local radio station in the county. In 1993, it changed its name to its current form. The radio station is owned by Galway Bay FM Ltd. Galway Bay FM skillfully strikes a balance between music and talk in its programme structure. Music enthusiasts can enjoy a variety of tunes, while those hungry for thought get their verbal nourishment. The station's playlist generally features pop music from the last three decades, including current hits. However, in special decade-oriented programmes, you can also hear music from the 80s, and even the 60s and 70s. Additionally, genre-specific programmes delve into Irish country and American country music, as well as traditional Irish music, enriching the station's musical palette. The traditional Irish perspective is not limited to music; the radio station also broadcasts some native Irish language programmes. The broadcaster delivers hourly news bulletins covering local and international news, sports updates, travel information, and weather forecasts. News also features prominently in specific programmes, where local, national, and international affairs are debated, and in-depth analyses broaden the viewpoint. Another extensively explored topic is sports, with sports-related programmes passionately discussing sporting events in the county, Ireland, and the world through commentaries, expert reviews, and analyses. Galway Bay FM awakens its listeners and energizes weekday mornings with "Mollie in the Morning" airing from 6:30am to 9am.
