Radio Veronica Anders Maaseik (later known as Lokale Radio Grafiek Maaseik) was a community radio station, that was a household name for many years, in the Dutch/Belgium border region surrounding the city of Maaseik.

This website is merely a place for memories and nostalgia, and is not connected to any radio station that currently exists.
