Instead of looking way way back into the 1920’s and 1930’s, this series features a time familiar to many people today, and already the #1 feature atwww.radioheritage.net so far in 2014 is Retro Radio Japan 1953, followed within the Top 10 features by Retro Radio Australia, New Zealand Pacific 1953….so come and have a look at the radio stations that ruled the airwaves just over 60 years ago.
You’ll find Brazil, Iron Curtain Europe, Nordic Europe, Canada, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East/Central Asia and many others…………..and for some even more recent memories, Retro Radio Hawaii 1961, Idaho 1963 and Texas 1963.
Enjoy them all today, and see the top books, music and movies of 1953 as well, so you can get a good feel for what life was like listening to the radio in those exciting times.
Keep an eye out for a new series of features soon, we call them Free Europe 1953 and there is one covering AM, another FM and a third covering shortwave.
The Free Europe group along with Nordic Europe and Iron Curtain Europe completes our coverage of Europe in 1953.
With current events on the borderlands between Russia and the European Union, it’s fascinating to look back 60 years, shortwave may have almost disappeared, but the tensions remain just as real.
