Free radio champion Dr Tim passes away

Very sad news comes from the SWCH website that free radio champion Dr Tim of Germany has passed away aged 72

There are probably not many free radio DXers who don't have a QSL in their collection from Radio Dr Tim, or one of the many other names he would broadcast under.

He was a champion of free radio who would be heard on the airwaves with his wide variety of musical programmes - from schlager to heavy rock to disco and, his biggest love, Dutch pop group BZN.

He was regularly heard on 48 and 76 metres, using many different names include Radio Disco Hell, Radio BZN, Radio Jingle Bells and Radio Bella Italia.

Werner, rest in peace and thanks for entertaining us over the years.
