RTL Radio Luxembourg, 1440 kHz

If Radio Nederland was an institution on the shortwave bands, what was Radio Luxembourg on mediumwave then?? Ask anyone 60+ about their memories, impressions and opinions about Radio Luxembourg. It was THE radiostation. Everything that was new was played on Radio Luxembourg. I remember when Lynn Anderson’s “Rose Garden” was played several times, every hour.(!) I first heard about Elvis Presley’s untimely death on Radio Luxembourg. It didn’t take long before the first “I remember Elvis Presley” songs were played. Now the transmitter is still to be heard, but now they are relaying China Radio International. It’s a pity. A discjockey and a computer is all that is needed to once again have the real Radio Luxembourg on air…
