A GREAT INTERNATIONAL BROADCASTING ORGANISATION
The English transmissions of Radio Luxembourg form just a part of the vast international broadcasting network which has become an accepted way of life in many European countries and is known throughout the world. The French programmes broadcast on 1293 metres Long Wave have for years enjoyed greater popularity in France than those of the French National Service. The 208 metres Medium Wave Band is shared at various hours of the day for broadcasts in English, Luxembourg, Flemish and German, and it is estimated that upwards of 50 million listeners tune in to one service or another of Radio Luxembourg every single day.
Tele-Luxembourg provides a first-class television service to an ever-increasing number of viewers. Many will recall that the great 1962 Eurovision Song Contest was televised from the Concert Hall of Radio Luxembourg. Radio and Tele-Luxembourg is indeed the entertainment barometer of Europe.
