Programme #44 (July 2020)

We heard the sad news recently that Pat Herbert, curator of the Hurdy Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio in Howth, had died. A long interview with Pat launched this programme in 2016, so this month we bring you part of that interview as a tribute. We also learn about gender disparity in the music played by commercial radio, listen to a flavour of National Community Radio Day 2020 and find out about Galway pirate radio history.
