Tom Taylor passing away With great sadness we report the death of European Music Radio's founder and short wave legend Tom Taylor, to many also known as Barry Stephens. For many dedicated SW free radio enthusiasts, E.M.R. was thé station in the late 1970s and 1980. As from 1980 onwards E.M.R. and FRS became sister stations. Within a few days a Memorial with some personal memories will be put on the FRS site. We will inform you via mail when it will be on-line. All of us at FRS are shocked by Tom's death. He indeed was a short wave legend. May he rest in peace. Peter Verbruggen (on behalf of the FRS Team)
Dear FRS/ E.M.R.Friends,
It doesn't happen that often that I forward two messages on the same evening.
But no need to explain...you will all know the reason...
I have just uploaded my personal Tom Taylor/ E.M.R. memories. Special thanks goes out to Ian Biggar!

Just for your information:
There will be a Tribute on SW late February. Many radio people who know Tom from past and present will participate.
Of course you will be informed about time and frequency.
Apart from that (and before I heard about this great initiative from Herbert Visser) I had already decided there will be
a tribute from us at FRS as well. Hopefully in February.
Soon I hope to publish a number of reactions I have been receiving in recent days from both radio people as well as listeners.
Feel free to share your personal Tom Taylor/ Barry Stephens/ E.M.R. memories. We appreciate any contribution!
For now...have a good weekend!
73s from all at FRSH,
