In the summer of 1968 for the first time most of the programmes came direct from the studio's in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg; with discjockey Paul Kaye as the first newsreader. Hello Dick, I have written my contribution to your 208 guestbook, but I would like to tell you some more, what is meant especially to you. I grew up listening to Radio Luxembourg when I was a teenager. No recorded programmes on tapes from London anymore. Two weeks ago I discovered another fansite in the net. On this website there are hundreds of recordings of Luxembourg night programmes from the sixties until 1991, including some Dutch recordings, all between 30 and 90 min. After this he gave me a peace of tape with that recording. One evening I found Radio Luxemburg on medium wave. When Stuart Henry (with his own headphone) was presenting a programme I saw Barry Alldis (46) coming into the studio. From than on I listend every evening til midnight and was always tired in school. Of course the power of the two Telefunken medium-wave transmitters, with the antenne on the high mountain of Marnach, was important too; with the power of 600 Kilowatt (1968: 1200 Kilowatt). Found this site by accident whilst looking for a luxembourg memoribillia site as wife has signed pics 5 djs on 1 page of Kid Jensen, Bob stewart, Paul Burnett, Tony Prince and David Christian.bought back so many happy memories please start on internet would be great to hear again ,same jingles etc lol thanks again for bringing back so many happy memories. In Stavanger we could only listen to Radio Luxembourg after dark because of atmospheric conditions. So almost everybody in Europe could hear the sound of fading Radio Luxembourg; on the great 208. Later in the 80's thay played "All Of You Out There" by Duncan Mc Kenzie. I grew up listening to 208 in the 70's and 80's, So many memory's, Well done for a great site and hopefully the great 208 will live on forever in our hearts.
It took a long time (January 18, 1977) (now 30 years ago) before I had my third visit. and now i am retired and have time to listen your again.... Is it possible to install a link to this website on your site? Since this time the Great 208 was my favorite station through the night, it has accompanied me through my life until the end of am broadcasting in 1991. I remember about my pocket radio under my pillow in the sixties, listeneing to top 20 at midnight, then the long car rides to the north of my country during my time in the army. Great memories ,i am working doing gold shows on Radio Cumbria. I had been listening to RL in the years 1971 to 1981. I still have songs recorded on cassettes (now ripped to mp3 files) from that time.
A wall with a window in it divided the studio: the D. Colin Nichol showed us everything in this studio; even the studio's for the German, French and Luxembourg programmes. That night between 21.15 and 22.15 hours we were again in the studio. It felt so damn good at the time and it still does, especially now after having read many of the posts here.
And for the first time (after listning so many years) we saw how the programs were made. The discjockeys were English; the engineers were from Luxembourg. Today in 2012, Im an on air radio pro and mostly thanks to Luxy 208. Hi guys, Every time i see the name Radio Luxemburg, I always have a little smile to myself! We were living in different countries but it turns out we were hanging on the same wavelength.
I found two old brown tapes with original Top Twenty's. And "The Friday Spectacular" (EMI records); each Friday between 10 and 11 p.m. And I'll never forget that week when the Beatles had 2 singles, an EP and a LP in the Top 10. In the 70's the only way for Irish kids to hear pop music was 208. A superb site - brought back many happy listening memories - thank you.
Between the recorded programmes the resident discjockey told that "This is Radio Luxembourg, Your Station Of The Stars" and pushed the button to sound the (famous) gong. In the engineer's room stood a small mixing console, two turntables and three taperecorders. 208 was on all night in my late teens in the early 80s and a potential girl friend just had to love or at least stand it. Even Barry Aldis thought that was something special. Lovely memories of listening to Luxembourg under the bed clothes so my mum wouldn't know I wasn't asleep!!
These discjockeys presented programs too; like "Sundays requests" , "Let's take a spin" or The Postal Bingo Show. Two were for the programmes; one was for the commercials. And after the last tune (4 am on the continent) she would have to leave to give me a couple hours sleep before going to school. Good to see so many others here share the love of the memories.
