Paul Newman's 'Radio Shack' returns today! Video: See our transmitters in Kall

Paul Newman's 'Radio Shack' returns... today!

Paul Newman
This weekend we welcome back our old radio friend and former colleague: Paul Newman (UK).
Paul was Radio Mi Amigo International's first English DJ/PD, where - as early as late 2014, still under Captain Kord he did some groundbreaking work for the station.
His weekly 'Radio Shack' show was one of the most popular DX shows on Shortwave, and helped build the station's success. Since 2016 Paul's great voice is heard on Britain's DAB station 'Solar Radio' and he is also a team member of Tony Prince's 'United DJs'. 
But old love never dies, in this case Paul's love for that typical Shortwave AM sound and the 'Free Radio' format of the legendary offshore stations that only Radio Mi Amigo can offer.
We are delighted and couldn't be happier to announce the return of Paul Newman's Radio Shack DX show, this weekend! (For those who can't wait: see Paul in action in the video below...)

See our band new 30 minute video, the tour at our transmitter site in Kall-Krekel, Germany:

To celebrate the long awaited return of Paul Newman to Radio Mi Amigo this weekend, AND to honour our extended partnership with Shortwave Service, this is the perfect moment to premiere the unique video that we shot in the Sendezentrum during our first visit to Kall. Paul and Burkhard will take you on a tour to finally show you exactly where those nostalgic, fading AM radio signals originate from...

Last month we paid a long overdue visit to our transmitter friends from Shortwave Service in Kall; a happy reunion that resulted in great new plans for the future. Good news for our shortwave listeners: you will be able to enjoy Radio Mi Amigo International on shortwave for many years to come!
We also looked back at a very successful co-operation of 4 years, during which we managed to maintain an incredible 99.9% up-time for both the shortwave- and the online streaming services. All this time we proved to be professional partners, relying on each other in good times and in those bad times, after we lost our 'captain' Kord. 
But from the very start it was always clear that Radio Mi Amigo International and the Sendezentrum in Kall were 'a match made in heaven': vintage radio sounds best on vintage transmitters! 

As we still found ourselves in a very happy 'marriage', there, in that breathtaking Eifel landscape, we 'renewed our vows':
   'Let's keep this thing going' remains our shared motto, so we decided to do just that... 

...keeping the 70s alive: Johan Vermeer - Radio Mi Amigo Veteran
Did you know Johan Vermeer is one of the original Radio Mi Amigo jocks, who served on Radio Mi Amigo's second ship in the late 70s?
Johan VermeerBeing so familiar with our station and the great music of the offshore era that we still play every day, not only comes in handy for his current Mi Amigo programs, but also for his 'day job' as a music-director of Dutch national Radio 5.

His show 'Soundtrack Of The 70s' can be heard every Saturday at 11 am and every Sunday at 4 pm, online and via the shortwave 6085 kHz.
