End of roots-radio.de

Due to some health problem I stopped producing this radio show. It lasted 17 years, which is quite a while. Thanks to Ems-Vechte-Welle who gave me the chance to play the music I love. But most of all thanks to Gerd Stassen, my partner in crime. He took the micrphone every second week and he showd me the way to something I had never dreamed of before.

For me there was only one goal in making my own radio show: maybe John Peel would haved loved some of the stuff I played. So with his words:

Good night and good riddance!
