The history of ZDK
In the 1950s and 60s, there were only 3 radio stations broadcasting part-time in the Leeward Islands. The first was Radio Montserrat now ZJB. Then there was ZIZ in St. Kitts both operated by the local government on those islands.
On the 30th November 1970, ZDK came on the air broadcasting on the 1100 spot on the AM dial serving the Eastern Caribbean with 10,000 watts and the link between the studios in St. John’s and the transmitter site was an FM transmitter with 10 watts on 99.0 FM. So for the very first-time listeners in St. John’s Antigua could hear a radio station operating on both the AM & FM dial.
For more than 20 years Keith Edwards rented the company – Grenville Radio Ltd his building to operate ZDK at EC$200.00 per month. We are eternally grateful to Mr. Edwards for his generosity to the company.
The initial directors of Grenville Radio Ltd were:-
- Lydia Bird
- Vere Bird (Jnr)
- Lester B. Bird
- Roswald Bird
- Ivor Bird (Founder and Managing Director)
The Rt. Hon. Dr. V.C. Bird (Snr) refused appointment as a Director because he was then the Premier of Antigua and Barbuda and he saw it as a conflict of interest, However, he continued to be a welcomed adviser and a financial provider in turbulent times of trouble.
Sun FM – a 5.000 watt FM radio station and the sister station to ZDK came on stream on 1 st May 1995 on a frequency of 100.1 FM.
Over its 35 years of existence, ZDK Radio has been known as:-
- The Big 11
- The Big Bad “Z”
- Magic Radio’
ZDK is today known as – ZDK Liberty Radio International – broadcasting on 97.1 FM from its transmitter at the highest peak on Antigua, Boggy Peak and on the world wide web.
