Joan Walsh on Connemara Radio

Joan Walsh performing live on Connemara Radio 1996 – in conversation with Gerry Coyne.

11.00am -12.00 noon – 21st September 1996. Connemara Community Radio, Letterfrack..the next town to..Tully / Tully Cross?, Co. Galway, Ireland.

Please note the sound levels drop on first song The Cailleach for a while and then rights itself.

i’m in the middle of sorting this now…editing, clipping out pieces so i can get it below the 20MB size, and normalizing the levels. There is a dip at one point though, but it rights itself then. nope still over 20MB at 128kps and i cut out loads.. i will have to save it at less kbps so. 112kbps. maybe the project Hz is higher? than i use normally?  ok that below 20MB, but the Hz is at 48000 and i have a feeling it’s meant to be at 44100 instead. Seems to be an annoying sizzley sound in this, that wasn’t there earlier..?

Bless Gerry Coyne, he was fun to be with in studio. Made me feel at ease. A great radio host. I never did get back..so 18 blinking years later you get to hear it all here.

Anyways lets upload this. Pity I had to cut out all your man’s weather report, it was good, but not my content. I also had to get the file size down below 20MB.
