Hallo rock ‘n roll / rockabilly fans.
My name is Jack van Oers. Born in 1949, just a few years before the musical revolution called rock ‘n roll started to make waves. My wife and I are living in a small village called St. Willebrord in the South-West of The Netherlands. This is a place where a lot of people still appreciate the golden oldies.
Since 1998 I host a weekly 2-hours radio show at Radio Rucphen in the Netherlands. The music played in these shows are all rock ‘n roll related. From Doo-Wop to Country Rock and from Indorock to Rockabilly.
Rockabilly is my favorite kind of rock and roll. Mainly from the 50’s and early 60’s. But I also love the music from the European rock ‘n roll / rockabilly revival in the 70’s and 80’s.
After working for an American company for about 36 years I retired in 2010. Time for a new challenge at Rock-It Radio. My show will be called “The Rockin’ Windmill Show”. The Netherlands is filled with windmills, hence the title. Most of the songs will be from the 50’s and early 60’s. At least 10 European recordings will be included. The lenght of each show is well over 1 hour.
Rock-It Radio closed down on September 30, 2020.
