50th Edition of "Radio News"
It´s 25 years ago this year that the Free Radio Campaign Germany was founded. Their magazine Free Radio News, later simply called Radio News soon became famous by its beautiful pictures of the offshore radio ships, most of them taken by Theo Dencker.
As a special tribute, here are 24 of the magazine´s black-and-white photos:

At the beginning of May 1997, the 50th edition of Radio News was issued. It´s a very special one, celebrating the 25th birthday of the FRCG. It contains no German text but only historic pictures of the early British stations, of Radio Syd from Sweden, Radio Antwerpen from Belgium, Big L, RNI, Veronica, Laser/Communicator, Caroline and Radio Paradijs. The magazine was printed on high-quality paper, and the 49 black-and-white photos are of an extraordinary quality.
Radio News is quite expensive , but this special issue is highly recommended even for non-German-speaking readers.
A sample copy costs DM 9 / £ 4 / $ 6 / 9 NLG.
