TUNING THE RADIO: Early traditional music recordings from the RTÉ Libraries and Archives.

Some of the finest recordings of irish traditional music in the RTÉ Sound Archive are made available for the first time with this release.

Capturing the sound of traditional music as it was played in the four provinces of Ireland some two generations ago, the twenty five tracks on this CD are a selection of priceless recordings held by the archive of RTÉ Radio.

The recordings, which have never been issued before, were made by the storied collectors of Radio Éireann’s first Mobile Recording Unit in the 1940s and early 1950s, when disc cutting machinery was first transported around the country in the quest to create a representative archive of Irish traditional music.

Now some of the best of these recordings have been digitally restored and re-mastered, and are proudly presented by RTÉ Radio as treasures from the early history of sound archiving in Ireland.

This CD / DVD was added to our catalog on Thursday 18 November, 2010.
