SPIN 1038 (or simply SPIN; pronounced "spin one-oh-three-eight") is a local radio station in Dublin, Ireland. It is owned by Denis O'Brien's Communicorp group and broadcasts under a sound broadcasting contract with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. Despite their name, they do not broadcast on the medium wave band (1038 not being a valid medium wave frequency), but on 103.8 FM. SPIN 1038 is mostly heard in Dublin but can also be heard in such towns as Naas, Celbridge, Leixlip, Maynooth, Drogheda and Bray due to their close proximity to Dublin.


The station (which originally applied for its contract as "Spin FM") was one of three new ILR[clarification needed] stations which were awarded franchises in October 1999.[1] It was intended to provide an alternative for listeners younger than those catered for by the original two Dublin ILR stations, FM104 and Dublin's 98FM. The station however was subject to delays due to legal action from an unsuccessful opposing consortium,[2] however, it finally began broadcasting as SPIN 1038 at 10:38am on 19 April 2002. Despite being initially known as "the dance licence", the station now plays mainly popular music.


SPIN 1038 broadcasts mainly Top 40 music aimed at 15- to 34-year-olds. The station broadcasts various programming throughout the day, including Fully Charged (formerly Breakfast Xpress) with Graham & Nathan, The Zoo Crew with Jaz & Laura, SPIN Hits with Steve K and Spin Xtra.

News bulletins are aired at on-the-hour from 7am-6pm and consist of local, international, sport news and a five-word weather summary.

Fully Charged

Fully Charged is SPIN 1038's Breakfast Show airing weekdays between 7am and 10am, with a "best-of" show airing Saturday mornings at 8am. They play the biggest hits around and have various features including Gotta Get It Wrong and Downtown. The show has been hosted by Graham O'Toole and Nathan O'Reilly since the June 2017 and has won multiple IMRO Radio Awards including "Breakfast Show of the Year" in 2019 and "Radio Moment of the Year" in 2020.[citation needed]

Sister services

A sister station, SPIN South West, launched on 23 July 2007 in Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary and south-west Laois. The station is run from Raheen, Limerick and it is similar in format to SPIN 1038 but is independently managed and run. SPIN South West can be picked up in most of the province of Munster, meaning it has a potential listenership of over a million people.

SPIN 1038 also has a sister station in the Czech Republic – since sold by their parent firm – and had one in Jordan, which has since closed.[3][better source needed]
