Retired radio producer Tim Lehane went looking for a tape in his attic.
It was a favourite of RTE agriculture journalist, Joe Murray, who died in May 2011.
It's a recording of the early harvest of 1992 - on July 7 - but also tells of Joe's passion for good farming and good radio.
Music used: "Fields of Gold", Seán Keane
