RTÉ Acetate Disc Collection
RTÉ has just released a substantial new archive - RTÉ Acetate Disc Collection - featuring recordings from 1930s through to the 70s in digital format.
Trawling through it atm if anyone else is interested. Will drop anything notable here.
Already found this interesting piece from 1939:
Presenter interviews a local farmer who claims to have encountered the fairies. A second presenter interviews a fiddle player about his experience with fairies. who then plays a tune on the fiddle to try coax the fairies out.
Sound quality is unfortunately poor, as explained on the site the acetate deteriorates quite badly, but fantastic that RTÉ have made this available.
