1973 – Interview with DJ David Kid Jensen on
“Jensen’s Dimension” show on Radio Luxembourg
featuring 6 tracks from LP “Home Thoughts”.
This is Clifford’s first visit to Radio Luxembourg :

19730000 Kid Jensen interview Clifford T.Ward (42.21)

Clifford Thomas Ward (10 February 1944 – 18 December 2001)
was an English singer-songwriter, best known for his career as a solo artist.
Ward’s 1973 album “Home Thoughts” remains his best known recording,
and he had hit singles with songs such as “Gaye” and “Scullery”.
His reluctance to tour in support of recorded work may have affected his
chances of more substantial mainstream success.
Ward’s manager  in the early 1970s, Clive Selwood, commented on Ward’s lack
of touring as contributing to his lack of success:
“Clifford should have been a major, major star – he had hits,
but he simply wouldn’t perform publicly” …

Magnus Johansson is a young Swedish filmmaker.
He recently directed and produced a film called Radio Luxemburg .
The 30-minutes long film, which has been presented at
the International Film Festival of Gothenburg, is only the latest
reference to the history of Radio Luxembourg.
During the Cold War, communists in Eastern Europe controlled
most aspects of public life. But radio transmissions from
Western Europe could not be controlled and thus reached millions
of people on both sides of the iron curtain.
While Radio Luxembourg meant rebellion and disengagement from
established habits on the western side, it brought the lifestyle
and modern spirit of the West to the East.
The film tells the story of a girl from the city who visits her
cousin in a village on the countryside during summer.
Shortly after her arrival the girl’s only record breaks and so her
only chance to listen to her favourite music is to get her hands on
a radio that can pick up Radio Luxembourg …

2012 05 31 BBC R2 – pt1 Radio Luxembourg 208 – Your Station of the Stars

2012 06 07 BBC R2 – pt2 Radio Luxembourg 208 – Your Station of the Stars

Part 1 – Thursday 31 May 2012, 10.00-11.00pm, BBC RADIO 2

Noel Edmonds tells the story of the original pop music station
in the UK – Radio Luxembourg. It was hugely influential for millions
of so-called ‘under the bedclothes listeners’ who were starved of 60s
pop music, but frustrated by the signal, which faded in and out.
This month marks the 80th anniversary of the first test transmissions to Britain.
A full service started in 1933 and it was 20 years ago that it finally closed down
to UK listeners. The story of Radio Luxembourg is the story of pop music radio,
but it is also much more.
In part one Noel takes listeners back to 1932 and preparations to fire-up the mighty
Junglinster transmitter, on a long-wave frequency Luxembourg didn’t actually own.
Once on air, commercial radio arrived in the UK for the first time. During the 1950s
the station kept several paces ahead and pulled in millions of listeners who were
captivated by the popular music and presenters. But then in 1964 the pirate ships
in the North Sea arrived.
The programme includes contributions from Pete Murray, Teddy Johnson,
Bill Kenwright and Radio Luxembourg Archive recordings.

Part 2 – Thursday 7 June 2012, 10.00-11.00pm, BBC RADIO 2

Noel Edmonds continues the story of the original pop music station
in the UK – Radio Luxembourg.
It was hugely influential for millions of ‘under the bedclothes listeners’ starved of
Sixties pop music but frustrated by the signal that faded in and out.
This is the story of a radio station, broadcast on an extremely poor frequency,
but loved by millions of music fans.
This month marks the 80th anniversary of the first test transmissions to Britain – a full
service started in 1933 and it is 20 years ago that it finally closed down to UK listeners.
Listeners were led to believe that everything heard on the station was broadcast live
from the ‘Grand Duchy’ in Europe, although the reality meant that whilst some
presenters were sat in front of a mic in this tiny country, much of the programme
output was pre-recorded in London.
In the second part Noel traces the impact of the pirate stations and how the BBC finally
reacted after government policy kicked it into life. Luxembourg in turn moved to
unfettered pop music with its team of big six DJs in the early 1970s and, with a
new general manager, carved a fresh position of influence with music fans.
But the end was only 20 years away – so what happened?
And what was the legacy of 208?
The programme features contributions from Paul Burnett, Tony Prince, Mark Wesley,
David Jensen, Steve Wright, Brian Matthew, station manager Alan Keen
and Radio Luxembourg archive recordings.

Info from Offshore radio newsflash -
 Herbert Pjede report (04 Jan. 1999):

"Shaun Tilley & Paul Burnett,
two legendary jocks of RADIO LUXEMBOURG,
produced a two hours show entitled "65 years of Radio Luxembourg".
This show has been broadcasted on Merlin Network One (MNO)
and several radio stations in the UK around Christmas 1998.
While preparing the show, Shaun noticed that there is still 
a deep demand for 208 Radio Luxembourg. Even today hundreds 
of mails or e-mails reach former LUXY jocks with question 
regarding the old days. For that reason Shaun Tilley decided 
in coordination with MNO to produce "The Vintage Sound Survey Show". 
Each edition will carefully aim to re-create the unique feel 
of Luxembourg in whatever year is featured in the programme using 
the 208 jingles, news stories and hit singles of the time. 
In early 1999 Shaun Tilley's "Vintage Sound Survey Show" will be 
broadcasted on MNO..."
