In the May 2022 edition of Wireless, we cover two big radio anniversaries: 50 years of Irish language station RTÉ Raidio na Gaeltachta and 20 years of talk station Newstalk. We learn about the Ukrainian information service in Carlow and Kilkenny on local station KCLR FM. The show also covers how the Eucharistic Congress of 1932 launched Irish radio onto a world stage.
