Subject: RE: Radio Luxembourg 208
My main recollection of Radio Luxembourg is on summer evenings in 1954/5, sitting under the trees on the (ex)golfcourse. The radio was a portable (with difficulty) valve set - 110V lead-acid HT battery charged each day by the local garage. I couldn't afford such things, but my better-off friend had that and a decent guitar. I was making do with a £2.50 mandolin (I still have it, but it's in a sorry condition, having been sat on at party).
