A 24-page booklet about radio programmes (British spelling) in London, England.  Prince Charles and Princess Diana (who died tragically on August 31, 1997) were on their first year of marriage. In fact, the Princess of Wales was giving birth to Prince William that year back in 1982. (Sorry for the condition of the book--too much extra space.  It may be redone later.)
