Other early music magazines include: Gun (early 70s) produced by the Bolgers; Buck Out, circa 1973-74, possibly an early Stokes brothers venture (Niall Stones was definitely a contributor); Scene (c1975) which was the direct precursor of Hotpress; and others. Obviously there is also Spotlight and it's successor Starlight. In the 60s there was Hitsville. And there was regular (often excellent) music coverage in In Dublin magazine for a number of years. This section greatly needs expansion. If anyone out there thinks they can contribute to this subject, please get in touch.
