Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Greg Shoom for this 1976 recording of the Voice of Iran.

Greg notes:

"This recording might be of historical interest. It is the Voice of Iran from December 1976, three years before the revolution in Iran that overthrew the Shah and established the current Islamic Republic. The recording is of the full half-hour broadcast and includes the news, some Iranian music, and a segment on falconry as a sport. There is some occasional interference from single-sideband station."

This VOI recording was made on December 5, 1976 at 20:00 UTC on 9,022 kHz.
