new recruit

Hello, I'm Peter. I live near Brussels, Belgium and have always had a keen interest in things maritime. That's probably due to the fact that I grew up in Bruges, Belgium in the 1960's and enjoyed the output of various off shore radio stations dotted off the coasts of The UK and Holland (Hippy) . Since then I have moved into broadcasting myself :D

Also on behalf of the 'SN Moderating Team', welcome aboard Peter.

The offshore radio stations you mentioned brought back many happy memories, Radio Caroline, London and many others. Great nostalgia (Thumb)

Thanks to all for your warm welcome :)
@ John Rogers: Brussels is indeed overrun by tourists at the moment. But even under these circumstances it's still a beautiful place ;)
@ Pompeyfan: the influence of the offshore stations on the medium radio in Europe is still apparent today. So not only do they provide great memories, they also changed radio beyond recognition.
