MN.07.01.1993. Radio Czechoslovakia splits



For 20 years, I produced and presented a radio show about international broadcast media. I sent a copy of the programme to Austrian Radio, ORF in Vienna, as we shared resources with Wolf Harranth at Radio Austria International. When I left Radio Netherlands in 2003 (yes its 10 years), they sent all the old tapes back. I've uploaded quite a number of them back onto the web, simply for nostalgic listening and amusement. Amazed that these programmes get up to 6000 downloads a month. Not bad for steam radio.

Radio Prague returns as the country of Czechoslovakia ceases to exist. Jim Cutler goes mad about our phone number. Radio Sweden changes its output. Changes are afoot at Radio Luxembourg, with the ending of English broadcasts. Wolfgang Schultz reports from Hamburg. Radio Monique is revived on Euronet via SkySports. Euronews is launched from Lyon. Dutch public broadcasters scorn the channel. We remember LM Radio out of Mozambique. Victor Goonetilleke remembers hearing it. Moldova is testing, as so is Radio Australia.
