Interview: Patricia Loughlan (DXer)

On October 20th 2018 over 100 radio anoraks gathered in the Ballsbridge Hotel Dublin. The purpose was to meet and record oral history of the pirate radio era.  We hear a lot from the broadcasters but it is rare to hear from the listeners of the era. The hardcore listeners were DXers (listening in to faint distant signals or as Patricia puts it, trainspotting for radio). Here Patricia Loughlan from Raheny tells you her story and listening to covert stations from Santry to behind the Iron Curtain to Australia.

Panel: Liam de Siún, Roger Lloyd, Ian Biggar, Eddie Bohan and Dr Don Moore
