TWR Celebrates 59 Years Today

59 years ago, the TWR's first radio programs went on the air from Tangier, Morocco.  And... about this time ten years later, test broadcasts began to emanate from the new Bonaire transmitter. 

So in 2014, TWR - International will be celebrating 60 years, and TWR- Bonaire will be commemorating 50 years of broadcasting.  Whoo whoo.

We're already rooting through the audio and pictorial archives in preparation for our 50th.  Sandra was here back then, but doesn't remember much from those days.

You can listen to an excerpt from that first broadcast from Tangier, 59 years ago today.
