Scanned by Brand New Retro from New Spotlight, November 1970, this article, by the late Donal Corvin, talks about two new pop shows from RTE Radio.

Disc a Gogan had Larry Gogan at the helm with help from Ken Stewart and Val Joyce.
The Balfe Beat with Brendan Balfe had Pat Ingoldsby guesting with a Heavy Sounds slot.

Eddie Grant, then with The Equals, was a visitor to the studio, then based in Henry St, D1 and is pictured with comb doing Donal Corvin’s hair. Click on Pic on left to read article.
