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. It was a part of my life, like a good old friend.
Sometimes I am dreaming about a time machine, your site is bringing back all memories of these wonderful years to me. Thank you so much!

In Stavanger we could only listen to Radio Luxembourg after dark because of atmospheric conditions. Then as a teenager, and I still do.. Yeah, it was Barry who made me very sleepy at school on Monday mornings. Not even the Danish Top 20 could compete with that. Thanks everybody! Fun website. Brings back memories of the fifties and sixties. Always a struggle to get because of the competition from BBC West on broadcasting from nearby Cadnam.

Hi guys, Every time i see the name Radio Luxemburg, I always have a little smile to myself! You have a wonderful site, thank you. It brings so many good memories of the early 70s. I was a kid at the time in my teens and early twenties living behind the Iron Curtain and often listening to Big L on late at nights despite poor receiption.
It felt so damn good at the time and it still does, especially now after having read many of the posts here. We were living in different countries but it turns out we were hanging on the same wavelength. And I guess there was a good reason to that. Stumbled upon your site by chance and have been reading numerous posts for hours. I listened to RL, like so many others at night, under the blankets, while I still lived in Nijmegen Holland. Reception was marginal, but greatly appreciated. I wish I could have a listen to it now. Thanks for putting this site together and for maintaining it.
Thanks a lot for this page! 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. What a wonderful time Great site. Found this by chance. Brings back so many memories of listening to Radio Luxembourg's Top 20 Sunday Night show on an old bakelite radio. Muffled the sound with a cushion so my parents wouldn't know I'd sneaked downstairs. Every song seemed a classic.

The veteran DJ started his broadcasting career on Radio Luxembourg in In JimmySavile hosted the first episode of Top Of The Pops, and the week after its launch guested on the second edition from a Manchester Church suspended upside down from a rope with Todd Slaughter desperately hanging on the other end. He was found at his flat in Roundhay, Leeds, on Saturday - just two days before his 85th birthday. His death came after a spell in hospital earlier this month with a suspected bout of pneumonia. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall led tributes to the star, who started his working life as a miner in his native Yorkshire before running a series of clubs and working as a wrestler and DJ.

These were happy days. Still in radio streaming 7 days a week KWXY. See nr. Very nice site! Just read the sad news about Dave Christian's passing. I worked with Dave in Luxembourg during the mids. He was a legend to work with and one of the nicest, most generous guys I've ever met. I am distraught today. I just came across this site purely by accident. So nostalgic, I feel like crying with joy! I used to listen to the broadcasts as a young boy when I lived in Dublin on a Philips table top radio. The signal used to fade in and out, but such a joy to listen to at the time as it was the only "pop" station.
Congrats for the site and the whole project! I'm 46 now I hope I can tune it again some day! Radio Luxemburg was the radio of me growing up.

For me Radio Luxembourg was really the thing that made me lucky. In those quite boring times especially at sunday Radio Luxemburg was the real Star in the Sky. Falling asleep with that Great Music. I worshipped those broadcasts. Ok, you got addicted but there was no harm caused by it. It was free of costs and the things they tried to sell we're not in reach anyway.
Even the records we're hard to get. Getting in the mood again at once.

Surveying an astonishingly wide range of sites from literary translations to film festivals, Aboriginal art to education systems, the contributions offer a uniquely expansive dossier on the migrations of people, ideas, technologies, money and culture between the two countries.
The links between Australia and Germany are explored from a variety of new, interdisciplinary perspectives, and situated within key debates in literary and cultural studies, critical theory, politics, linguistics and transnational studies. The book gathers unique contributions that span the areas of mig.
