Energy 103 May 6th 1987

From May 4th 1987 this is Pat Courtenay's debut on Energy 103's breakfast show. We join just as the 7am news, read by Lisa Moore, comes to an end.

This is a recording of Pat Courtenay (photo) on Dublin station Energy 103. Dated May 6th 1987 we join him on the breakfast show during the 7am news, which is read by Lisa Moore.
Then from later in the day we join Tony Allan from 4.30pm – his show was affected by the ESB strike. George Long reads the News.
