Really? I don't recall the 96.1 being anything more than a brief period of time. Certainly the DJs and MCs were on other stations post the 99.3 end.

Definitely late 2004 they were 96.1 but I can't remember how long they had been of a while and had a relaunch on 96.1

OK that's interesting. Can you remember which DJs were on it at that time?

9nine3 had a lot of the old Upfront DJs but not sure about the management side.

Para used to play on there a lot around the end of the 90s/early 00s but he didn't run it, that was down to D****n.
