Since its establishment six years ago, Galway Bay FM has gone from strength to strength. The secret to its success is in its delicate balance between music, current affairs and news and specialist shows. The local identity is very strong in this station and this is very much appreciated in its franchise area, as is reflected in its listenership. Early mornings feature a mix of easy listening music, news snippets and traffic reports, followed by a current affairs show which deals with local issues in the main. Afternoon sees a mix of chat, competitions and classic hits music. National news bulletins on the hour are followed by local news, also on the hour. Evening programming features a number of specialist shows including traditional and country music shows and an arts show amongst others. A local, comprehensive sports bulletin airs each evening after the six o clock news, with extended coverage at weekends. Broadcasting begins at 7 am and finishes at 2am. Select programmes now availble in Real Audio format via the Internet. (end)
