Scandinavian Offshore Radio Historie

The commercial radio arrived to Scandinavia

In the summertime of 1958 the wellknown "De lytter til Radio Mercur" came out of the speakers on the FM radio in Denmark. 

The first commercial radio in Scandinavia was a fact with ads from Fona Radio, Toms Chocolate and Aerolloyd.
