Radio Luxembourg

A quick post, just to say that Radio Luxembourg has not had a mention on this blog, so here is a you tube video which has selections from some of the top djs they had on there, sorry about the Jimmy Saville clip, but in spite of his transgressions he was a good dj! A real treat is Emperor Rosko partially in French!

A special treat is a book all about the history of RTL Group in PDF format here is the link

Also on You Tube are documentaries on the history of Radio Luxembourg – I will let you search for these.

The first time I heard Radio Luxembourg was in my father’s friends car whilst visiting the Christmas Lights in Oxford Street and Regent Street, as a young child.  I had never heard pop music on the radio, let alone adverts on the radio. The sound of the music, and adverts, with the loud fades in and out and then coming in so clearly for a while, really fired my enthusiasm for radio, that is still alive in my 60s!
