Does your Dad still treasure his Rolling Stones LP records from 1966? Did your Uncle pay too much attention to the divorce matters of Paul McCartney? That’s because they belong to the Baby-Boomers, the generation born after World War II who rocked through the 1960s in flared trousers and miniskirts to the sound of The Beatles, Kinks, The Who and Rod Stewart.
Essential kit in those times was the personal transistor radio, every bit as iconic as the mobile phone today. The “tranny” would be carried everywhere, tuned to one of the illicit stations broadcasting from ships anchored off the coast. Mention “Radio Caroline,” your mother will know.
For those long-haired hippies now forty years on, there’s a special treat this Christmas. Santa is bringing on back the good-times, and all they need in every stocking is a Worldband Radio.
Old Dutch rocker Eric van Willegen has hired a former Soviet propaganda transmitter in Lithuania with a power of 100 kilowatts, that’s enough to be heard all over Europe and even in The States and Australia!
“Let the kids listen to their I-Pods” Eric insists, “We’re running a real radiostation playing real 60s Rock’n’Roll for those of us used to twiddling with the knobs, and if there’s a bit of hiss and whistle included, well that’s all part of the experience!”
THE MIGHTY KBC RADIO will be heard on Christmas and Boxing Day from 10.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. on 9770 kHz shortwaves, and later in the evening from 9.30 to 10.30 p.m. on 6055 kHz with tapes of the legendary Wolfman Jack Show. The full details are on www.kbcradio.eu
So now you know what to get the old man for Christmas!
