Radio Golden Flash

Radio Golden Flash is a station based in Westerlo, Belgium.   The Dutch writing on the sticker Google translates to "The never annoying radio" which might just be the best station slogan of all time.  Their playlist is fantastically all over the place:  Roger Whitaker, Pat Benatar, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dog, The O'Jays, T-Rex, Talk Talk, Blue Murder and plenty of Dutch-language artists made up part of the time I spent listening while writing this post.
