(For nostalgic reasons, of course.)

Perhaps you can elaborate on this for the folks on the other side of the world.

Radio Luxembourg??

Maybe I'm just too young.

Default too young?

Got an Atlas? Luxembourg is a fair distance for reception from parts of the Netherlands, so AM signals fade with ionospheric conditions - Just like they would interstate across Canada or anywhere.

This is how analog radio reception has been for a century and like the man says, It could be with fond nostalgia that one might recall this very popular European broadcaster.

Okay AM. well that explains it. No I don't have an atlas but I have been to the Netherlands.
Being across the pond I have no knowledge of this broadcaster. Besides I switched to FM mid 70s. I didn't even know what payola was until the early 80s.

Forgive my ignorance.

It was a very popular radio station in the 60s and 70s.
For more info please look here , here and here.
As in its heydays the power of the MW transmitter was subsequently increased to even 1.3MW, sometimes, at night, the station was even heard in the US, of course with a lot of fading.

Wow looking at those pictures kind of makes one wonder why people are worried about the tiny little emissions off smart meters.
