  1. R.I.P. Peter Van Dam

    A sad start to 2018. Peter Van Dam must be one of the DJs that I have listened to most over the years - Radio Caroline and Atlantis in 1973, Mi Amigo from 1974 to 1977, then on the TROS and KRO until the mid-1980s and then on Radio 10 Gold in the mid-90s. Always produced enjoyable programmes and now gone far too young. RIP Peter. Michael
  2. Zanger Hans Vermeulen plotseling overleden

    Sad news. "Summer train" was one of the best records of 1972, much played on RNI where it made number 2 on the International Prediction Hit 40, as well as the top 10 of the Super Hit 50. Regards Michael
  3. Gerard Smit overleden

    Very sad to hear that another former RNI DJ has died. I always thought that Gerard Smit was under appreciated at RNI. When the station closed in August 1974, only Ferry Maat, Leo van der Goot, Tony Berk and, if we ignore the 10 days in October/November 1972 when the International service was temporarily discontinued, Brian McKenzie had longer periods of continuous service, yet Gerard had periods when he only presented news, not regular programmes. His morning programmes in 1973 (alternating with Marc van Amstel) and Buitengaats in 1974 (alternating with Erik Post) were amongst the best on RNI in my view. Regards Michael
  4. Tom Blom overleden

    Very sad. I remember listening to Tom early on Saturday mornings in 1978. I think he always started his programmes with "Hello Nederland ik hou van je". Far too young. Regards Michael
  5. Mike Ross ( RNI ) overleden

    One of only two DJs to broadcast on RNI in each of the years 1970 to 1974 (the other was Robb Eden), Mike Ross was a very important man on the station. As well as being a DJ, he was also an engineer, which enabled him to survive in February 1972 when Paul May, then programme director, decided that Mike, along with Dave Rogers, no longer had a place as DJs on RNI. Of course, after Paul had left RNI, Mike made a comeback as a full DJ and stayed, apart from the 10 days in October/November 1972 when RNI temporarily discontinued its English programmes, until early 1974. Very sad to hear that another RNI DJ has gone. Regards Michael
  6. Radio Unique - 20-04-1979 - 0700-0900 - Rob Hudson

    The date of this is interesting - Rob was broadcasting from the Mi Amigo on 20 April 1979. I suppose Radio Unique programmes were taped in advance and this was recorded before Caroline restarted on 15 April 1979. Regards Michael
  7. Thanks from me too, Peter. Always good programmes from Extra Gold. Long may they continue. Happy New Year Michael
  8. Stichting Media Communicatie

    Best wishes for a quick and full recovery, Jan-Fre. Regards Michael
  9. RNI 01-11-1973 - 49 meter band

    These were almost the last programmes by Peter Holland and Nico Steenbergen on RNI. Nico's last programme was the following day, Friday 2 November 1973 and Peter presented Berk in Uitvoering on Friday 2 November 1973 and then a programme on the morning of Saturday 3 November 1973 before he too left. So these are very welcome programmes, thanks Vincent. Regards Michael
  10. Thanks for this series of RNI programmes, Vincent. A lot of good listening hours. Regards Michael
  11. RNI - Uitzendtijden gezocht

    I noticed the 13041970 as well Jean-Pierre, but I don't know where that comes from. Alan plays "Green Manalishi" by Fleetwood Mac (at no 16 in the Top 30 that week), which was not released until mid-May 1970, so the 13041970 is misleading. it's definitely 10 July 1970. Right at the end, Alan mentions a new DJ, who he calls David Jackson, but who was David Gregory, who was just arriving on the Mebo 2 for the first time that day. Regards Michael
  12. RNI - Uitzendtijden gezocht

    This is Arnold Layne on the Hitback show from 20.30 to 21.00 on 17 September 1972. Hans - I think the previous one, Alan West, is from 10 July 1970, not 30 July 1970. The clue is that Alan says that Spangles Muldoon will be coming out to the Mebo 2 and that is the day that he joined RNI. Also, the jamming had stopped by 30 July 1970. Thanks for these RNI programmes, Vincent. Interesting to work out when they were broadcast. Regards Michael
  13. RNI - Uitzendtijden gezocht

    This is Mark Wesley from about 15.50 to 16.21, but not from 13 May 1970. Mark says that it is Sunday and they are testing on 244m, so I think it must be 17 May 1970. Regards Michael
