The life and times of a Radio Luxembourg DJ and the boy in the Eastern Bloc who couldn’t live without it.
A double autobiography from both sides of the Iron Curtain.
This is the story of the communist effect on the teenagers and musicians in Czechoslovakia, set against the remarkable career of Tony Prince, a DJ who rocked the boat, met Elvis Presley, sang with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, toured with the Osmonds and partied with Led Zeppelin.
Tony became the only DJ to perform inside the Iron Curtain not long after the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia which is where the authors first met. This is the story of the daddy of all radio stations and the DJs who entertained an estimated 100 million trans-european listeners every night!
