RTE (Radio Telefis Eireann) is the national broadcaster in Ireland, still state owned last time I checked. Radio 2, the pop radio station launched in 1979, also released some records.

The discography is incomplete. As far as I can tell, the first release was RTE 50.

Some early titles appear to be much more difficult to locate than others, particularly #50 and #52.
