5/7/08 - During 1984 & 1985 I was 15/16 & stayed at our caravan at Walton-on-Naze whilst living in Dagenham. Euroseige was fantasic, I was in won over for 2 weeks in the school holidays listening to Laser, then I spent 2 weeks in Germany on my return Charlie had gone

In those days I woke up to Laser & went to sleep by Laser the Abba & that's all folks was great

Happy Times- Chris Keensale

Enjoyed your article on Laser, do you anyone who has or where I can get one of those notices - the one warning boat owners during eurosiege? it would look good in my studio (a talking point) a reasonable sum offered. Tony

I've just got round to checking out your latest update. Great photos of Laser. Especially good to see a picture of Erin Kelly. Very nice lady. I met her a few times. She was called Erin Cavanagh when we first met. I recently saw a picture of her on the WYCD Detroit web-site and noticed that she had become Erin Weber. However she now seems to have disappeared from their line-up and presumably has moved on yet again - and is probably Erin Something-else by now! all the best, Jon

Just had another look through your excellent site & saw Laser. When I was seventeen I listened to one of the early tests from Lazer when they used a helium balloon to fly an antenna. Being a sad sort I taped the last hour or so before they shut down ( I did not hear another test on this frequency, they began properly a few months later) Regards Paul
