European Music Radio

A crappy photograph of an oversized paper sticker from European Music Radio. An unlicensed, pirate broadcaster, EMR began regular shortwave transmissions in 1977 from "somewhere in Europe." After being raided by the authorities in 1980, EMR moved their broadcasts from the UK to the Netherlands until 1983 when they went off the air. They returned in '86 for a brief time only to go silent again until 1996. In 2002 they became a legal broadcaster using facilities in Milan, Italy and later originating from Latvia. EMR most recently was based in Germany. This short video aircheck reveals their continued broadcasting as of November, 2011.
