MV Mi Amigo 1966

Emperor Rosko the son of Hollywood film producer. Rosko got his first taste of broadcasting while serving in the US navy and, after leaving the service, took a broadcasting course in San Francisco. He moved to Europe and worked on French radio before joining Radio Caroline South in 1966 from the MV Mi Amigo. He brought with him a personality which combined a number of the gimmicks and techniques he had heard while growing up listening to American Top 40 radio.

In late 1966 he left Caroline to return to France, where he hosted a hugely successful afternoon show on the French Radio Luxembourg, this time not as an 'Emperor' but as 'Le President Rosko'.

His 'Rosko In Exile' shows, taped in Paris, were heard late on Saturday nights on Caroline South.
