Re-union for Luxy presenters

Former radio presenters from the Great 208 met on Saturday, 2/08, to celebrate Radio Luxembourg's 75th anniversary.

The station started broadcasting from the tiny European Duchy in the 1930s and went on to change the course of commercial radio history.

Paul Burnett, who worked on the station from 1967-74, told the BBC that at the time, landing a job on Radio Luxembourg was the peak of a DJ's career: "When you got the job, when you were told that you were going to be on 208, it was the Holy Grail as far as I was concerned.

"All the DJs I'd admired, Pete Murray, Jimmy Savile and all those kind of people, were almost mythical figures, they came out the radio but I never dreamt that one day I might do that job," he added.
