Exidy 738


Exidy 738 May 23rd 1984

This is a one-off experimental broadcast from the Radio Nova stable under the name Exidy 738. Tony Allan is the presenter from 10.28am.

On May 23rd 1984 Radio Nova split their medium wave frequencies, keeping Radio Nova on 819kHz. The 738kHz transmitter had been introduced a few weeks earlier because of an RTÉ jamming campaign against the station and on this particular morning, different music could be heard on the frequency. It eventually went live with Tony from just after 10am.
