This recording of Monaghan station Radio Star Country was made on New Year’s Day 2003. On air is Country Girl Claire with requests and dedications phoned in to a Monaghan number. An advertising promo includes numbers for sales representatives in the North and there are plenty of adverts from both sides of the border, including for country music stars. News from IRN is heard on the hour and the tape finishes with the Wednesday morning gospel programme, evidence of the station’s religious backing.
This recording was recorded in Scotland on 981 kHz AM from 0903-1003 on 1st January 2003 and suffers from electrical interference at times. Thanks to Ian Biggar for the donation.
