From Sunday, October 30th 1983, this is a selection of programming across the day from the Cork station South Coast Radio.
First, from 1.35pm, live from the Jazz Festival, there’s a link-up between the studio (John Lewis) and Dan Lowrey’s Tavern (Keith York) for some live music.
This recording was made in Cork by Gary Hogg (DXArchive.com) who remembers: The link-up with the Jazz Festival at Dan Lowry’s is interesting as Keith (who sounded like he had been enjoying the Guinness!) and Johnnie mention about the jamming of the link. I remember them having a lot of trouble at that time with someone jamming their signals.
From 3.30pm, more from John Lewis, recorded off 1557kHz .
Then, from 4pm, Steve Douglas takes over, also recorded off 1557kHz.
Later, from 7.20pm, George Long is on evening duty, this time recorded off 102.9MHz.
From Sunday, October 30th 1983, this is Cork City Local Radio recorded off 97.9MHz FM. First, we hear from Steve Marshall with Cork’s Top 40 countdown from 3.30pm. He’s followed at 4.30pm by Rob Richards.
From October 31st 1983 this is a recording of Denis Murray’s Rock show on Kiss FM in Dublin. The recording starts at 3pm and was taken from 102.7MHz.
