FRS on air next Sunday Sept. 2nd

Dear FRS Friends,

As a result of a geomagnetic storm, last Sunday's traditional 'late August' broadcast wasn't received very well within our target area.
For that reason we repeat the full broadcast next Sunday September 2nd.
Full information is to be read on our website. Just use the link below! Details about our web streams are included.

Today- Friday August 31st- sees our 'official' 38th birthday. Exactly 38 years ago- August 31st 1980 just before 10 o'clock- FRS signed on on 6250 kHz.
FRS-Holland: 38 years of short wave free radio! Tune in next Sunday, it'll be worth while.....
All the best!

Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team.

Larry Dean RIP

Larry Dean, aka Frank Laseter , RIP. He is missed not only by family but also by thankful radio listeners far and near.

In May 1966, a new radio station with a big sound appeared on the AM dial noted very early by Rolf Mong and myself and created a mass appeal among young people throughout Europe. I was just 15 at the time and was hooked! That was Swinging Radio England(SRE), operating first on 845 Khz and later on 1322 khz. It operated from a former US Navy ship in the North Sea off Essex called the Olga Patricia.

One of the presenters on the air was Larry Dean who had left WPTR in Albany to become a very influential voice in the UK and Northern Europe.

He is still fondly remembered. I got to know him at the 2006 Radio England/Britain Radio(BR) Reunion and enjoyed his company.

I became the station's historian, and in my essay "The Radio Rose of Texas"(2004-) Chapter 4 there is a paragraph called "The Larry Dean Show".

On my friend Jon Myer 's great website "The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame" there is a lot of interesting material about Larry Dean and his station, with bio and some great recordings that show what a really great broadcaster he was.

His last job in radio was as news director on Charlotte's WSOC-FM. I am proud to say that under his own name, Frank Laseter also appeared on our own station Radio Northern Star in promos from 2012 until 2016.

Picture is from the website of Jon Myer and was taken at the twin stations' first HQ which was the London Hilton near Hyde Park at the SRE/BR Reunion in May 1966. From l-r Station Founder (the late Don Pierson)'s son Grey, fellow broadcaster Rick Crandall, myself and Larry Dean.

„DX-Special“ des Köln-Düsseldorfer Kurzwellen-Club (KDKC)

Zitat von der Webseite:

Der KDKC wurde im Februar 1976 aus der Taufe gehoben und publizierte gleich zu Anfang sein Blatt „DX-Special“. Diese Publikation ist eine einmalige Chronik einer spannenden Ära des freien Radios. Erinnerungen an Stationen wie Radio Valentine, Radio Caroline oder Radio Delmare werden beim Blättern durch die alten Hefte wieder lebendig. Bis Ende 1985 war der KDKC erste Adresse für regelmäßige und umfassende Information in deutscher Sprache über all das, was auf der Kurzwelle sozusagen das zusätzliche Salz in der Suppe war.

Roger Kirks „Free Radio Fanzine“

Zitat von der Webseite:

Roger Kirk, ein Name, der für deutsche Radiogeschichte steht. Geprägt von den einstigen Seesendern wurde er selbst zum Radiopionier. Roger startete am 17. September 1983 die Kurzwellenmusikstation Radio Victoria International (RV). Roger war mit RV gnadenlos der Zeit voraus: Bevor der Privatfunk in Deutschland startete, machte er mit seinem Team Free Radio via Radio Milano International, Radio Time und Radio Benelux. Radio Victoria hatte einen eigenen Hörerfanclub und dieser veröffentlichte das FANZINE. Eine wahre Fundgrube an Hintergrundinformationen rund um Radio Victoria, die damalige Free Radio- und Offshore-Szene. Es ist eine wahre Freude, die chronologisch zusammengetragenen Informationen rund um die Mediengeschichte(n) aus Ostbelgien, Südtirol und der Schweiz, bis hin zu den ersten privaten Tönen in der Bundesrepublik nachzulesen.

Atlantic Oldies 2NG on shortwave

Atlantic Oldies 2NG Newsletter


First let me thank all of you for the kind words and replies recently after the closure of the 2NG streams. I will reply, there are just a lot!

I wanted to quickly tell you that we will be on ShortWave this weekend. It's a three hour block as follows.

Hour 1 - All Sixties with Rick Ainley
Hour 2 & 3 - Bill Rollins Teatime Pirate Radio Special.

The shows can be heard as follows.

Saturday 12th August
WBCQ 7490kHz (N. America)
1700-2000 EDT (2100-0000 UTC)

Sunday 13th August
Channel 292 6070kHz (Europe)
1100-1400 UTC (1200-1500 BST)

A common question received if it's available online. 2NG will not be streaming however we believe WBCQ has a stream of the 7490kHz service. Check out There is a web radio in the Netherlands which tends to work well with the Channel 292 service. That can be found at

We planned this weekend on SW before the whole royalty thing blew up. It's remembering the 50th anniversary of the Marine Broadcasting Offence Act in 1967 that silenced the ships. All but one.....

If you get a chance, try and listen.

Best Regards, Richard
