Elvis death - Radio Luxembourg
The death of Elvis is one of those moments in history. If you are old enough to remember; you do remember. You recall where you are; and how you heard.
For many, in those pre-internet days, the news broke on radio. And evening pop radio in those days was still dominated by Luxembourg. That station too had a special relationship with Elvis ; which was all too apparent too, as a clearly moved Tony 'the' Prince broke the news and prepared an all-night tribute. There is something about the Luxembourg mic echo combining with the nightime AM atmospherics which render this a powerful capturing of a moment in time. #RadioLuxembourg
