|A late night show from an unknown presenter on Wednesday 28th July 1982. The recording was made in Mullingar from 92.5MHz FM in mono, and mention is made that the station was on 1071kHz / 290m medium wave and would soon be on FM. So presumably this was received on an early FM test, and the levels were a bit variable.
