I don't know if it's related, but a guy and girl used to run "Grasscutter Radio" just over a decade ago. He used the name Grasscutter and she was Sunshine.

I can clear this one up.
What was heard was an old recording of Sunshine Radio 539. This was a Dublin Ireland station from the 1980's.

The recording was one of many played to commemorate the closure of the Irish pirate stations 30 years ago (Dec 31st).
