Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Bill Hemphill, who writes:
I ran across a reference to Radio Delta International Shortwave, a Hollands station on 6020 kHz. The reference was to a song that was recorded for them by Silvia Swart en het Radio Delta lied. Which (according to Google) translates to The Radio Delta Song. It’s on YouTube and I like the sound of it even thought I don’t know Dutch.
YouTube link to the Radio Delta song:
There’s some nice photos and background to the station equipment on Delta Radio web site;
After listening to the song by Silvia Swart, I did a search on her and found that she did other radio songs.
Next step was to dive in and learn a little more about her. Thank goodness for Google Translate. From her website
I learned that Silvia has made over 155 tunes for legal / illegal pirate stations, associations.
Her parents run a record shop in Holland and that her father, Record King JB Swart, produced the Original Pirate Hits. From his web site
I learned that his store carries Pirate Music as well as the usual Dutch and other stuff a record store would normally carry. Now I understand her interest in radio.
One last song I found that she recorded with her group, The Greenlights:
Mijn opa is een zendpiraat
Which translate to: My grandfather is a radio pirate
Maybe one of the forum members can give us a quick translation/summary of the songs.
Thank you for sharing this, Bill! Any fans of Silvia Swart out there? Please comment!
