The Royal Ruler & The Railway DJ is a double autobiography from both sides of the Iron Curtain.

This is the story of the communist effect on the teenagers and musicians in Czechoslovakia, set against the remarkable career of Tony Prince, a DJ who rocked the boat, met Elvis Presley, sang with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, toured with the Osmonds and partied with Led Zeppelin. Tony became the only DJ to perform inside the iron curtain not long after the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia which is where the authors first met.

This is the story of the daddy of all radio stations and the DJs who entertained an estimated 100 million trans-European listeners every night.

Whilst every kid across Europe listened to their transistor radios hidden beneath their pillows in fear of their parents, Jan Sestak listened in the knowledge that the Czechoslovak Secret Police who prowled his land would send him to prison if he were discovered. Their Gestapo predecessors imposed the death sentence on anyone caught listening to western radio stations.

There are two incredible sides to the Radio Luxembourg listening experience and you may be forgiven if you can hardly believe what you are about to read.

Here is the first book in the world to reveal what teenage life was like under Communism in the Eastern Bloc and what boundless fun it must have been like for the men behind the microphone.
