CONCISE HISTORY

Our first public broadcast was on 13 February 2012 and total broadcasting time was 24 hours/week for two shows:  1) Dan’s Art Rock & Prog Rock and 2) Ed’s My Generation, including Sixties Rave, The Rolling Stones Circus and Free Speech / De Gedachten zijn Vrij, incl. poetry.

On 2 January 2013, Radio 68 started to broadcast seven days a week, doubling its schedule to 48 hours. Eventually, The Rolling Stones Circus was dropped.
In November 2013, the two-weekly Dutch poetry show “Dichters in de lucht” was added (but still  under the heading “Free Speech / De Gedachten zijn Vrij”) .

On  15 January 2014, “Free Speech / De Gedachten zijn Vrij”‘ became a separate show broadcast on Wednesdays under the title “Woord op Woensdag / Word on Wednesday”.
On 8 January 2015, Radio 68 underwent a make-over: a new look, improved technical features, more permanent information on the website and an extra 24 broadcasting hours, now totalling 72 hours/week.  The shows were diversified, re-arranged and rescheduled to four shows: Art Rock & Prog Rock by Dan; My Generation  (including ‘Blueside’), Free Speech / De Gedachten zijn Vrij, and Dichters in de Lucht, by Ed.

In September 2017, both “Dichters in de Lucht” and “Free Speech / De Gedachten zijn Vrij” stopped. Instead, Ed launched “Langspeeltijd – Long-playtime” on Mondays and Wednesdays. From that date onwards, both My Generation (incl. Blueside) and “Langspeeltijd – Long-playtime” include  Word, Poetry and Free Speech. Radio 68 now broadcast three shows (see above), totalling 72 hours/week.

On 1 Jan. 2020, we added another 24 hours to our package (= 96 hours/week).
