Dancehalls, music and radio

Many of the Bridge-IT participants spoke about the importance of the radio in the time before there were televisions. In particular many mentioned music and dancing as important aspects of their lives. This collection includes all the material which relates to dancehalls, music and radio and is linked to the exhibition on Dublin City Life under the section called Living.
