SOMETHING WRONG ?
When you are very sure that some details regarding the former 208 jocks are wrong or when you have updating informations please mail me.


When I tuned in my radio some night in the beginning of the 70s I suddenly considered that besides the german service there was an english service at RADIO LUXEMBOURG too. And from the very first minute I was fascinated. It was not only the music or the jingles that made listening to 208 that exciting; most of the fascination was caused by the fantastic 208 jocks. Although the sound quality due to the AM-signal fading in and out was poor I could not wait tuning in to Luxy as often as I could.

On this site you will discover pictures and sound bites of some of Luxy's best and most remarkable DJs. Click on the cassette symbol to listen to airchecks and find out what their job is today. All audio files are in mp3-formatte. So if you don't have a MP3-player get yourself a free one here.


fingerMost of the audio files are new !!!finger


Some are completely new as I managed to get better airchecks. Most of the others have been improved so they will sound quite better than those you knew already. As modems are getting faster all the time and more and more surfers already use 'ISDN' I stored the files in this high quality standard. Besides the cassette symbol you will see the size and length of the jocks files.

BOB STEWART
Forgetting all respect we can talk of Bob as the dinosaur at '208'. Coming from the pirate station 'Radio Caroline' he worked at LUXY from 1969-1991. He left the station when broadcasts via AM were stopped. He lives in Dallas/Texas today and is working in the radio business but I have no idea for what station.

Did you know that though he sounded so typically american on air he is an Englishmen? In the beginning of the 60s 'Radio Caroline' looked for an american DJ but couldn't find one. Bob showed all his talents and spoke in such typical slang that he finally got the job. He's living in America and has retired.
