This recording of the Dublin alternative music station Spectrum FM is from July 9th 1997 and features Pete Reed from 7.30pm on 105.3MHz. Interestingly, this recording was made near Blackpool during an FM lift. There are one or two crackles, fades and breakthough from other stations which were also coming through during the lift.
