This is a very lively edition of Radio West’s Anorak Show from January 25th 1987.
Seán Coyne and Don Allen deal with the biggest radio industry stories of the week and on this particular show took a phone-call from a bad-tempered Hugh Hardy (pictured) of Radio Carousel.
The show ran from 11am to midday and although this recording is edited it shouldn’t spoil your enjoyment.
