Before we get started, here's an
email from May 2011 asking for your help: "I'm
a late 20's something radio broadcaster with several
radio stations in the USA. I love hearing recordings
of radio stations from all over the globe. If anyone
who was stationed in Diego Garcia in the distant
past has recordings of the American or British
forces radio stations that may have operated there,
I'd love to hear them. I'm also very interested in
anyone who was recently on Diego Garcia or may be
there now who could record the radio stations for
me. I can't really afford to pay you, but I will be
glad to pay postage there and back along with the
cassette tapes and anything else necessary. If
you can help, please email me! Thanks, Paul

Many thanks to Terry Mross for these photos.
Terry is one of the success stories of the PPDRDG. He's a movie star!
O.K., now the test question: Does anybody know these guys?
Don't you love the beards? Ahhh, the good 'old' Navy...

Here's Jim Morrison, a DJ from 1984:
Here are some official US Navy photos of the computerized control room at the NBS station on DG. Somehow, I think those old boys in 1972 had a better time.
