Unofficial audio archive …

About

After some adjustments, the unofficial audio archive
now resumes showing materials from original broadcasts
Radio Luxembourg 208 – The Station of The Stars …
Now all the materials are placed on my personal Google Drive.
I think this will work well …
New posts with audio materials will be added gradually
(probably by the date of the broadcast)
Also, the numbering of files has changed,
now the basis will be : year, month, day – the name of DJ – duration .

Enjoy yourself … Day by Day with 208 …

        I’d just like to say – thank you for all the hard work you put in to this website. It brings unbridled joy to me and makes me feel Luxy is somehow still alive.
        May I ask – where are all these programmes coming from? How many more do you have left to share?
        Thank you, again.

      • Thank you for your kind and warm words.
        Yes, you right, unfortunately, the end must come sometime.
        And this will probably happen quite soon, at the end of 2019.
        The archive has almost exhausted itself.
        New materials come less and less …
        All these audio materials from the bowels of the Internet,
        from various private collections, forums, ftp servers, etc.
        The beginning was in 2003 , now is 16 years ,everything for the fans 208 …

    I grew up with Radio Luxembourg in the 1970s, and I really think it’s just great to hear these original broadcasts available now on the wider tapestry of social media. I just love to hear some of those records that were played originally on 208 as either new releases, 208 DJ Hot Shots or even 208 Power Plays. I have since sought these rarities online, and I still as much as remember them when they were first aired on 208 now nigh on 50 years since. And it’s really lovely to hear those DJs’ voices that I, and a vast majority of this nation as a whole, have really missed over nigh-on 50 years. Keep it coming love.

    Hello, great site! Do you have any recordings of the German service from the mornings? We had a battery operated transistor radio in our bathroom and I used to listen as a kid in the UK evenings in the 1980’s in the bath! But I would leave the radio tuned to 1440kHz since you could hear the German morning service quite well in the early part of the UK daytime too. I remember brushing my teeth before school and they would always play a very rousing orchestral tune just before 8.00 that I would love to hear again. It sounded so great I would sometimes salute whilst it was on! Does anyone else remember this?

    • Thank You , Captain D! for your kind words and wonderful story of memories.
      Unfortunately, there are no recordings from morning broadcasts in the German service.
      This page is more tuned to English and Dutch Services of Radio Luxembourg 208.
      But if you search well, you can find here, several audio recordings from the German service,
      including with DJ Dave Christian (19830200), RTL Der Oldies Sender (19921231),
      Axel Fitzke, Wolfgang Rositzka (19820911), Alex Fitzke (19780000) …
