Alessandra Luciano: “None of us has seen this collection since it aired in the early 80s: Chewing Rock & Saga du Rock”

[TBA]: “208 Radio Luxembourg, The Station of the Stars”- In 1933, “Radio Luxembourg” began broadcasting in England, despite fierce opposition from the BBC, and became Europe’s most powerful commercial radio station. During the 1950s and 1960s, “208” was THE radio of the rock ‘n’ roll and pop revolution, and represented the voice of freedom throughout Europe, even beyond the “Iron Curtin”, leaving its mark on an entire generation. This talk will retrace this unique history, and how the archives have allowed to turn this research into a documentary film using television, radio and photographic archival collections.
