FINAL HOUR OF RNI 24 SEPT 1970

This is the final hour of Radio North Sea International (RNI) broadcasting from International Waters in the North Sea, transmitting from the MV Mebo 2. The voice of Europe and the Sound of the World. Broadcasting on 220 mtrs MW,  39mtr band 9.94 megs, 45mtr band 6.2 megs and in VHF Channell 44 100megs. Presented by Andy Archer and Alan West they list all the DJs that have been on the station totalling 22 in all. How many do you remember? Horst Reiner, Hannabel, Axel, Elky, Johnnie Scott, Rodger Day, Carl Mitchell, Andy Archer, Alan West, Mark Westley, Spangles Maldoon, Michael Lindsey, Duncan Johnson, Ray Cooper, John Denny, Dave Gregory, Mike Ross, Stephen Ladd, Dave Rogers, Ed Murino, Rob Eden, and Bob Mackay. Listen to Bruno remember him? he was the guy who was an engineer on the station and also helped build the Mebo 2. Andy Archer then tells the history of the station, the good times and the bad. Mixed with a few RNI jingles and a few commercials. Hear Chicago the radio engineer saying his final goodbyes as does Bruno. Then a statement is read  "RNI is voluntarily closing down at 11 o'clock due to the pressure in the Dutch Parliament to close down the offshore stations. Our Directors in Zurich feel that it would be better for the people of Holland to suspend broadcasting so the Dutch Government will not attempt to close down Radio Veronica so dearly loved by the people of Holland for the last 10 years. RNI thanks  you all for your support in the past months during ours times of drama and struggle, thank you for being faithful to us............we close this morning at 11 o'clock. "Andy Archer, Spangles Maldoon, Mike Ross, Stephen Ladd, Dave Rodgers, and Alan West all say their final farewells. Hear Andy Archer thanking all the various people and organisations connected with Radio North Sea. Listen to the final record Peace by Peter followed by RNI's theme tune Man of Action by The Les Reed Orchestra, RNI was no more, into the offshore radio history books it went. A brilliant CD tracing the end of one of the best offshore stations there has ever been and a recording that is definitely one for the collector. This is solid gold nostalgia.

Footnote :  In order not to upset the Dutch Authorities and cause them to take action against the long established Radio Veronica which had been on the air since 1960,  Radio Northsea International voluntarily closed down after broadcasting for 1 year. That at least was the story told to the press , in fact Radio Veronica paid Radio Northsea Internationalto stay off the air !!!!!!!
