IRRS-Shortwave: Special one-hour tribute broadcast to Tom Taylor

(Source: Mauno Ritola via WRTH on Facebook)

From Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS-Shortwave:
Dear Listeners and Friends,

We were approached by colleagues who produced a special one-hour’ tribute’ program to Tom Taylor, and we decided to air it on our station in the coming days.

A very great deal of effort has been taken to produce this program, and some of the most legendary broadcasters in the UK and European clandestine radio have stepped forward to pay warm tribute.

Tom has been on the air “legally” via IRRS-Shortwave since 2002. Tom’s funeral was on Monday, Feb. 12, 2018. I was told that his family were supported by some of Tom’s friends in radio, and they were surprised and delighted that he is to be celebrated in this unique programme which will end the 40-year chapter of European Music Radio (EMR).

The one-hour tribute program to Tom Taylor will be aired by NEXUS-IBA on IRRS-Shortwave at the following times/days:

R.I.P. Tom Taylor of European Music Radio fame

Many thanks to Mark Stafford who shares the following news:

RIP Tom Taylor/ Barry Stephens a Short Wave Pirate Radio Legend

Just got some very bad news: Barry Stephens (Tom Taylor) of European Music Radio fame has died.

To many of us learning the art of Pirate Radio Broadcasting in the South East of England in the 1970’s, Tom was “The Governor”.

EMR was a class station, probably the best Short Wave Pirate in the late 70’s. Barry and his colleague Roger Tate were legends.

Tom/Barry was also a really nice guy who helped us so much. He fixed our transmitters so many times for us and taught us how important good modulation was. Tom used to tell us “you have got to have hissing sidebands, mate”! By that he meant, lots of top end so that it cut through the noise and splashed audio on the next door channel!

Tom had a famous three wheeler Reliant Robin that the he took the EMR gear out into the woods with! We will all remember that.

Thank you, Mark. Tom was an on the SWLing Post readers and even sent his EMR weekend notes which I happily published. Though I never got to meet him in real life, he was always a good soul–and of course, a tremendous figure in the world of shortwave pirate radio.

Rest in peace, Tom.
