Radio Andorra tribute 12 April 2021

Special program announcement: As some of you know, the legendary Radio Andorra was taken off the air these days 40 years ago in 1981 by the government. Some programs that were prepared couldn’t be aired, most of the material is lost. Luckily, the playlist of the last planned hit-parade from April, 12th 1981 survived, thus it was never broadcasted. 40 years later this will finally be done. Next Monday, April, 12th 2021 at 17 UTC, exact 40 years later we will complete history. The show will be hosted by a DJ that started his career in Radio Andorra end of the 1970s. The program will be in French and broadcasted via Moosbrunn on a steerable LogPer Antenna directed at 270° towards the centre of France. All French-speaking countries in Europe should be covered in good quality.

Date: 12.04.2021

Time: 17 UTC until 20 or 21 UTC (depending on some extra features we try to prepare next days)

Frequency: 6180 kHz

Power: 100kW

ANDORRA (non). I just noticed this Facebook post on 4 April from Christian Milling of
“Happy Easter! Joyeuses P âques! Feli ç Pasqua! These days 40 years ago Radio Andorra disappeared from the ether. On April 12., 2021, we will resurrect it again for 3 hours.”
In response to follow-up posts, Christian advises that the broadcast will be:
“on shortwave, Internet and perhaps local FM relays. Frequencies will follow later. … The radio house (i.e. studio) burned down in 1991, but the location of the central wave station still exists. Last year we already had plans to do something locally. Then Corona came and currently nothing is possible. That’s why it’s gonna be an acoustic revival. Specifically: the created but never sent hit parade from April 12., 1981 we will reconstruct and bring 40 years ‘too late’ On Air; on the net and also short wave (like 1981) I hope that we will have the planned On-site performance then can catch up at some point when the world ticks back to halfway normal.”
