This is a recording of Radio Nova, the Dublin superpirate, which starts at just before midnight on June 6th 1985.

It features the final of the Funny Bubble Competition (an entry form is seen here in the Sunday World) live from Nova Park.

Henry Owens plays the tunes back in the studio and Bernie Jameson reads the news.

The first recording was made in the NW of England and conditions are variable for the duration.

The second recording was made on FM from just after midnight and is airchecked.
