Way back in the day before pirate radio in the UK, us kids had these new-fangled things called transistor radios. If you took the back off the radio, de-waxed a couple of bits and turned a couple of uncovered screws you could pick up .. Radio Luxembourg.
It faded in and out but some nights the signal was strong. Radio Luxembourg played the music we wanted to hear. No more Cliff Richard or other squeaky clean icons – we could hear proper rock.
The picture above is from last year – as I was waiting for the ferry across Bass Strait.
This is the music to go with it is Huey “Piano” Smith and “Sea Cruise”
