Radio Day 2009 in Amsterdam

Radio Day 2009 took place in Amsterdam on 14th November. As in previous years, the event was superbly organised by Hans Knot, Rob Olthof and Martin van der Ven. There are excellent photos of all the sessions on the Offshore Radio Nostalgia website's Flickr page.
Here are a few informal snaps, mainly taken at the event and a couple in a restaurant afterwards.
The day consisted of sessions discussing various aspects of offshore radio, the presentation of the second Radio Day Awards and a good deal of socialising.
