As a small boy I was quickly excited about radio. When I switched to the Offshore-stations at that time, I always had the feeling: Here I want to participate ! My first own experiences I made on the attic of my parents - home with my own studio and station. Later on at Radio Benelux for Hilversum and the surrounding area.
At that time I got the opportunity to work for Radio Mi Amigo 272. (left picture: MV Magdalena, home of Radio Mi Amigo 1979)

On the 26th of June, 1979, I went to the 'MV Magdalena', 12 miles off the coast of Belgium. I was the first DJ to open the program officially on July 1, 1979 and I was also the last live DJ on September 19, 1979, which closed the station before the ship later ran aground and was dragged into the harbor a few weeks later.
In the years later, I met my wife, got children and we went with our campers through Europe. Later I worked on some radio stations on land such as Radio Dynex for Almere and surroundings, in 2016 I was on Radio 036, a local station for Almere.
Now I got the chance to work again on 'real free radio', Radio Mi Amigo International. There I present 'Rock over Europe' every weekend. I am happy and proud to be 'home' again at Radio Mi Amigo!
