Radio Prague International – via OMD

This Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark album dredges up in my memory every now and then – because its one of the oddest pop albums ever – mainly, because they start the album with Radio Prague International’s ID:

But for a dyed in the wool SWL – who has a National SW-3 “Thrill Box” right in front of me – and gracing my latest QSL card:

Every now and then I just have to listen to that Radio Prague International sign on, and remember how it was back in 1971 – when I built that Heathkit SW-717 shortwave radio – and actually heard all of the European SWL stations coming into Newton, NJ.

Do a Google search on “Dazzle Ships” – its a great read. Quite the odd and pretty interesting pop album indeed.

A great and fun time in my life.
