How Radio Was Done Part 86

With one last listen to 1985, we play almost an entire OTE show from that year, the first year entire OTE shows were kept on tape. This one is, /”Im Not Sure,/” a live performance by Negativland involving a quiz show concept about TV commercials with callers as contestants. Some technical difficulties occur in this broadcast producing a few silent gaps, but almost the whole show is there, with your host, Dick Goodbody. This is how OTE used to be done in the early days when the whole group was participating every week.
