    Planet Rock was also a good station to listen

    I first heard of Smooth when I was in the North West, staying in Blackpool and finding the radio stations there.

    Managed to get a new digital radio today, and I often listen to Gold UK by default, even though Nottingham has had a Gold station for a few years because of its 999 MW frequency.

    I used to listen to Radio Luxembourg from about early 1984 to mid 1986. I'd gotten a new clock radio for Christmas, manly to wake me up in time for school! I still have that clock radio in fact, much the worse for wear of course. But it had a radio, and for some reason I tuned into Radio Luxembourg. So I managed to experience some hits of the 80s as they happened. Some songs I remembered-

    99 Red Balloons
    Band Aid single
    The Queen "Hits" of that time. I Want To Break Free, Hammer To Fall etc
    (Pride) In the Name Of Love
    White Wedding
    Hello
    Ghostbusters
    I Just Called To Say I Love You
    Relax/ Two Tribes
    Madonna, becoming a big name with her songs
    19
    The Power Of Love
    I want To Know What Love Is


    Well you get the idea. If it was a hit in the mid 80s I no doubt heard it on Radio Luxembourg. These days I just find radio DJs too annoying to be bothered with the radio that much. Hey, I'm sure that even in 1984 the DJs were annoying but I suppose I didn't mind it as much!

    I remember when Essex Radio first started, you could go to their office in Southend and write requests which they'd read out.

    Now I listen to a few, including the one my wife works at.

    TalkSport has since gone back to talk radio which it's a sister station TalkRadio

    I used to listen to Peel from 1979 until I went to Uni in 1981, when I got out of the habit.

    The last time I properly listened was in 1986, when my telly was nicked in a burglary - Peel again!
