— Now that corona seems to have been curbed, it is time to revive a long-standing tradition. Saturday 13 May 2023, the Friends of the Lightship Foundation is organising RadioDay 2023 in collaboration with SMC. About the programme, guests and firsts, we do not and cannot say anything yet. However, as in 2017, the radio lightship Jenni Baynton will play a prominent role. Make a note of the date and keep an eye on the website www.radioday.nl and the facebook page RadioDay Harlingen for current developments and the latest news. —-
