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.

Times and frequencies:
Europe – 0600 to 0800 UTC – October 30, 2016

November 28, 2015: Tune to “Rockin’ with Raoul”

Radio-Dial-Blurred-Dark

Radio producer and SWLing Post friend, Raoul van Hall, writes:

Hello fellow shortwave and music fans. I am very excited to be broadcasting via PCJ International, a one-hour music special on November 28th. It’s called “Rockin’ with Raoul,” and it will feature some very rare rock tracks that you have probably never heard before. If you ever listened to The Rockpile on Global 24, and liked it, you will love this special program.

Plus we have special QSL cards for all these PCJ specials.

Thanks to Keith Perron and to everyone committed to keeping shortwave fun.

Many thanks for the heads-up, Raoul!

Rockin’ with Raoul will broadcast on 11580 khz on November 28, 2015 at 09:00 UTC.

More changes to this PCJ broadcast series

Please note that, Keith Perron posted the following on PCJ’s Facebook page:

I will be canceling the remainder of the PCJ Special Broadcasts after next weeks program. There is just not a sufficient audience to continue with the rest.

Last week and this week it was the same people. So it’s not justified to keep it going for fewer than 20 people.

Apologies to those who did tune in.

In other worlds, Rockin’ with Raoul, will be the last show in this broadcast series, so make sure you tune in! Contact PCJ with your reception reports.
