The Rare Recordings

Joan Walsh on radio, in studio and live.


The first lot of my recordings now digitised and uploaded to my website to be heard for the first time in 22 years and less. Ouch.

Please note that some recordings were recorded on DAT tapes; others on cassette tapes, re-recorded again onto mini-discs; some on CD’s. All in all some recorded onto my PC and edited using Audacity software.

They are not all perfect recordings, but rare…
