Radio Day 2007 in Amsterdam continued

The 2007 Radio Day was made especially memorable by the presentation of the first Radi Awards for services to offshore radio. The ceremony was hosted by radio historian Hans Knot and disc-jockey Robbie Dale. Not all the recipients are pictured here. For full details, see the Radio Day website.
 
There were three awards for people who were judged to have made an Outstanding Contribution to Offshore Radio. The first went to the boss of the Dutch station Radio Veronica, Hendrik “Bul” Verweij. Now in his nineties, it was collected for him by two grand-daughters. A second award went to former Veronica DJ, Klaas Vaak, now better known as Tom Mulder. The third recipient, pictured below, was disc-jockey Johnnie Walker.
