Take note – story published 1 year and 1 month ago

An internet radio station dubbed "Vecās Plates" (Old Records) was launched in April by Latvian Radio, offering a non-stop supply of around 1,000 classic cuts.

An offshoot of the popular Latvian Radio 2 channel, internet radio Vecās Plates offers such performers as Nora Bumbiere, Margarita Vilcāne, Viktors Lapčenoks, Ojārs Grinbergs, Žoržs Siksna, Uldis Stabulnieks, Aija Kukule, Mirdza Zīvere, Edgars Liepiņš and many others. 

They perform songs by composers including the 'maestro' himself, Raimonds Pauls. You can also listen to instrumental compositions performed by the Latvian Radio big band. Perfect listening for the nostalically-inclined or as the musical backdrop to a May 4 celebration.
