Paul Leuck was among the first Luxemburgish radio speakers in the post-war period. For 35 years, Leuck reported about sports and political events before he ended his broadcast carreer on October 1st, in 1979.

On the 1st October 1944 Leuck broadcasted his first radio show called “Welcome to our friends” from the studios of the Villa Louvigny. He also presented the programs “d’Zaldotenstonn” and “d’Krankenemissioun”.

Paul Leuck was well known for his detailed comments on the foreign policy during the Kennedy- and Nixon era. Leuck’s comments, as a convinced anti-communist, weren’t always, as you can imagine, neutral. But what really left a lasting impression was his unmistakable, confident and wheezy baritone voice.
