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.

From Sunday, January 15th 1984, this is the historic final two hours from Kiss FM, the Radio Nova sister station. The final show on the station was Kiss Rocks with Denis Murray (pictured in the Kiss FM studio) and the recording starts during the 10pm networked news. 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.
