Kiss FM March 29th 1983

This recording dates from March 29th 1983, an historic day in Irish radio history when the biggest ever cash giveaway took place on the Dublin station Kiss FM.

Kiss FM, Radio Nova’s sister station, promised to play three songs in a particular order at some point and when they did the 50th caller would pocket £5,000.
We join the programme not long after the three songs were played.

At this time RTÉ were conducting a jamming campaign against Radio Nova, who were broadcastng on 88FM. Station boss Chris Cary closed Kiss FM in order to give Nova an additional frequency to move on to to avoid the interference.
