It has been Europe's biggest and best commercial radio station. For a period of 59 years it has set
standards in the world of broadcasting.
This site has been created to keep the memories of 'The great 208' alive and to reflect the memories of
former listeners of RTL. Whether they are english, norwegian, dutch, american or german. Due to the
fact that LUXEMBOURG did broadcast worldwhide via short wave this station became familiar to
people all around the globe. And further to that there have been thousands of american GIs listening
to 208 during their stay in Europe. And browsing through the entries in my guestbook you will notice
that they still remember this great radio station today.
And now in brief what you can expect on this web site :
The complete story from 1933 to 1992 including many original audio cuts and comments of the former 208 stuff.
Pictures and audio documents of approx. 30 former jocks who worked for 208. Completed with informations of what they are doing today.
208 what one of the first in Europe to play jingles. Listen to examples from the 60s to the 90s. At the moment in total 23. And more will follow.
Lots of graphics: the logos from the 70s to the 90s, the broadcast centre, promotion stickers etc.
The new RADIO LUXEMBOURG is back. Check the details.
