Great memories from my childhood through my teens and into adulthood, great Radio Luxembourg. I am very sad to find that the 208 has closed again. Much time has passed, but the emotions experienced with Radio Luxembourg, they are still alive and rooted in our minds.
From 1958 till 1966 always presented by Barry Alldis. Most of the programmes were sponsored by record companies; for the benefits of selling their records. 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. It had to be the most listened station in the British isles. There was so fantastic to hear and to se on Radio Luxemburg again via the "net". You got a load of younger listeners during the time you were back again. BEPPINO SAN VITO AL TAGLIAMENTO, Italy (26/09/2011).
After this he had to connect the programmes together. I sincerelly think if "the station of the stars" would consider to come back, itd be a huge success.keeping its oldie spirit,with those jingles and that music and jocks.... I am glad you guys are still around but when are you coming back or not to web streaming radio? This is Barry Alldis; in the studio of Radio Luxembourg (Villa Louvigny) on 18 th January 1977.
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. 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. And there we met Tony Prince and Paul Burnett again. On the night of April 18, 1976 I was very surprised to hear Barry Alldis on the radio again. I phoned to tell him that I'm very glad that he is back. He answered that I am very welcome indeed: In the day- or in the night time. It was great to listen to the offspring of the great 208 on-line but it seems to be permanently down for maintenance. from 1990 up to now i did not have time in ankara while i was busy marrying and having child and working.

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....

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.
