For most of the last century a radio station ruled the world’s airwaves.

At the height of its popularity it had 100 million listeners in over 60 countries.

Audiences loved it.

The establishment hated it.

This station was Radio Luxembourg.

Radio Luxembourg changed everything:




And it did it all from the Villa Louvigny, a broadcast studio in the tiny country of Luxembourg.

We’ve been digging through archives, talking to the DJs, staff and listeners.

All to tell the story of Radio Luxembourg anywhere.

But to do that we need your help.
