Important notice!

Due to lack of time, I no longer maintain this web site but have donated the contents to the Radio Heritage Foundation to host online for reference purposes.


Welcome to this radio history site

Europe has a very rich radio history, starting with the very first radio broadcasts by Italian Gugliermo Marconi in the 19th century.


This site will become a media rich site, with loads of images and sounds, but also lots of plain text information. The main core, however, will be dozens of internal links which should give you a wiki-like feeling and which will bring you from one article to the next.


I hope you will enjoy many pleasant reading hours!
