I have a soft spot for RTE’s late 70s/80s kids programme “Youngline” if only because they gave a group of unknown teenage musicians from Dundalk (who had no manager or any media or music connections) a television appearance on their progamme on the basis of a demo tape and photos that the group had sent into them. That group was Choice and you can see more about that in one of my earlier posts.
The annual, like most annuals, is pretty awful. The rock pages have some interest. Ian Wilson wrote this one and even mentions Dundalk group Static Routines!
