Radio Nova June 6th 1985

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.

A whole host of Nova personalities – Tony Allan, John Clarke, Bob Gallico, Chris Cary & Colm Hayes – are involved as the winner is chosen from 12 finalists.

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

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