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. And "Music in the night" (since 1 st April 1963) till closing time at three o'clock. The commercials were connected together on one tape. The second visit for me in the Luxy studio was on July 11, 1970. It was always a childhood dream of mine to be a DJ on 208, I never made it, but it's was such an inspiration to me. I've listened to your radio first on the year 1971 while I was living in father adviced your radio. This archive is blowing me away, do you know about it? That time I met Dave Christian, Kid Jensen, Tony Prince and Paul Burnett. That night we went to the Blow Up Club in the center of Luxembourg. I do a bit of DJ'ing on a local Radio Station and 208 is always in my thoughts. when I was doing my military job in my country near by syria on 1978, I was still your listener. If there should exist any real time machine, here it is! This is a great website about a great radio station. I remember it with fondness as your website so clearly reflects time and history when I listened to Luxy from the late 60's to its final close down in 1992. Then always they played a very nice record: "The End Of The Day" by Steve Conway and The Hastings Girls'Choir. To mark beginning and the end of the commercials they had placed small paper strips between the tape on the reel. Stumbled upon your site by chance and have been reading numerous posts for hours. Thanks for putting this site together and for maintaining it.
Just before we arrived he presented Tuesday's Requests. Always a struggle to get 208 because of the competition from BBC West on 206 broadcasting from nearby Cadnam. I could write lot of stuff about those years.I remember once I phoned the studios during a contest and I won a pictured disc in 1985(limited edition), of couse, I still have it among many recordings I made. 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. 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.
