1987_10_17_sat_midwest_fm_gerryglennon_1736-1820-gh033.mp3 New Jan 2023 Saturday teatime 17th October 1987 with a presenter thought to be Gerry Glennon, who was hosting an interesting show with lots of phone calls with listeners.  There was a 'radio hangman' competition with the deejay, and also a phone call from country music fans in Birmingham. Recorded from FM, but the actual frequency is not known, and the levels are a bit variable. 63MB
