The idea of radio has always been a desire of mine since I was a child. I have always wanted to become a journalist or a preacher. My love for broadcasting led me to begin a religious programme on several Christian radio stations. After marrying my wife Michal, I shared my desire with her and she was also excited about it. One Saturday I had a microphone that was borrowed from Brother Wesley Beazer to do my broadcast.

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.
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.
