This is a recording of the 1980s Galway pirate station WLS Music Radio featuring first, Seán O’Boill, and then Casey Kasem. From 1.43pm on May 3rd 1986, we catch the last few minutes of Seán’s show before joining Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 at 2pm. There’s also the possibility of listening to an edited version with the music stripped out.
From May 1986 this is David Baker on air for Radio Sandymount – one of the series of ‘Festival’ stations that popped up in towns whenever they had their Community Week during the summer months. This recording starts at 2.31pm.
