Elvis Presley’s Death

Elvis Presley died on 16th August 1977.  Radio Luxembourg was the first radio station to break the news in Europe via The Daily Mirror news desk in London.  Mark Wesley read the news and was immediately followed by Tony Prince who, unscripted and sometimes tearful designated the rest of his 3 hour programme to Elvis and his world wide fans until the station close down.

John Peel on BBC Radio 4 ‘Home Truths’

In 2004 I was on a programme with the late John Peel on BBC Radio 4 called ‘Home Truths’. He was talking to me about a P.O.W Submariner’s recording I found in the occupied Radio Luxembourg’s files where the Nazi’s allowed him to broadcast a message to his Son and Wife all the way from Germany back to Looe in Cornwall. I covered this story in my book. Here is the link to listen:-
