Recordings from Radio Galaxia 92.10 FM, in my hometown Baia Mare, (county of Maramures, in North Western Romania). I was a member of the founding team in late 1994 and we went live-on-air in the evening of Friday, August 18, 1995.
I played all the music that I wanted, and was a regular on air, doing everything from morning jock to late night host. I LOVED IT!
The most successful show I hosted was GALAHIT, a TOP 10 countdown of favorite hits that I was spinning at a local nightclub, where I was the resident disk jockey. Galahit began in December 1995 and went strong for 164 weeks, up to the end of March 1999. Here is the eBook version of Galahit.
