October 30th & 31st PCJ Radio International presents program four in the continuing series From The Radio Netherlands Archives.

This month we put the spotlight on Eduard Franz Conradin (aka Eddy Startz). Startz was hired as a program maker for Philips Omroep Holland-Indie in 1927. In 1928 he started presenting programs in English, French, and Spanish. The name Happy Station came from the first words he spoke in English when he said “This is Philips Radio PCJJ your happy station) on November 19th, 1928. Hence The Happy Station Show was created.

The program will include some rare clips from his early days with PCJJ, PCJ and Radio Netherlands. Also part of the program will be a full 80 minute edition of Happy Station by Startz.

Europe – 0600 to 0800 UTC – October 30, 2016

    Yes, in addition to the no-show for 06:00-08:00 UTC on 7780 kHz on 30 October, there was only world music and some Brother Stair between 01:00 and 03:00 UTC on 7570 kHz on 31 October. What’s going on? This is not the first time we’ve had a screw-up with PCJ programming on WRMI. We lament that SW is going down the tubes but not getting schedules right doesn’t help.

    Did the program go out as scheduled at 06:00 UTC on 7780 kHz? My recording using the U. Twente receiver has just continuous international music. My screw-up or WRMI’s?
