CAPITOL RADIO December 16th 1978

Capitol Radio recording with Alan Russell

This is a recording of Dublin pirate Capitol Radio from December 16th 1978.
It features Alan Russell interviewing studio guests Owen McQuail & John Hynde who were members of Spectrum – a UFO/Parapsychology group.

Al Russell gave us a little more background for this recording:-
It was broadcast from 10pm on the night of Saturday, December 16th 1978
It was part of the station’s Night Flight segment which ran from 9pm nightly, featuring programmes of specialist interest – usually rock, New Wave, Rockabilly, Jazz etc.
The phone-in was somewhat experimental as it was competing with Gay Byrne’s Late Late show on the television.
