Blue Suede Shoes - End Of The Road

Important note from Doctor Charlie:

Hi everyone,

I have decided to stop preparing and presenting « Blue Suede Shoes », the program I have hosted during the last 34 years on Radio Libellule (Radio Dragonfly), 107.8 MHz, al radio station in Comines-Warneton, a town located in Frenchspeaking Belgium.


For the time being, the program is at the end of the road. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank three people from the bottom of my heart, three people who collaborated with me for years and helped me with the program: Chris BECKROW, who provided tons of discographic material, Michael WOODS, also a provider of so much music and webmaster of the sites (blogs) that host the program, and, mostly and finally, Mister LUCKY, who’s been helping me in the studio for more than 10 years, caring for the technical part and preventing catastrophies to happen whenever possible, and also replacing me behind the microphone whenever I was unavailable for various reasons. Without him, I would have given up a long time ago.

As always in such circumstances, the end of « Blue Suede Shoes » generates a lot of nostalgy for me, and probably for some of you, the listeners, as well.

Let’s keep hoping that some better days will come and we will be able to meet again, on the airwaves or at concerts.

Long live RNR!

Blue Suede Shoes - La Fin De L'Aventure - End Of The Road



Bonjour à toutes et à tous,

J'ai décidé de ne plus présenter "Blue Suede Shoes",  l'émission que j'animais depuis plus de 34 ans sur le 107.8 de Libellule FM, la station de radio de Comines-Warneton, en Belgique.

L'émission s'interrompt donc. J'en profite pour remercier du fond du cœur trois personnes qui partagent avec moi l'aventure BSS depuis de nombreuses années: Chris BECKROW, qui a mis un immense matériel discographique à ma disposition, Michael WOODS, lui aussi un fournisseur extraordinaire de musique et aussi webmaster des sites qui accueillent l'émission, et enfin - et surtout - MISTER LUCKY, qui m'accompagne chaque semaine depuis plus de dix ans dans les studios, où il "veille au grain", prévient et répare les catastrophes dans la mesure du possible, et m'a talentueusement remplacé à de nombreuses reprises.  Sans lui, il y a déjà longtemps que j'aurais déclaré forfait.

Comme toutes les aventures qui se terminent, l'interruption/cessation de BSS génère pas mal de nostalgie chez moi, et peut-être aussi chez vous.

Gardons l'espoir: peut-être aurons nous un jour l'occasion de nous rencontrer à nouveau, que ce soit via les ondes ou lors de certains spectacles ou concerts.  C'est toujours avec émotion que  je vous retrouverai.

Long live RNR!

Charlie (28 08 2015)
