Weds, August 14th: We Love The Pirate Stations!

This coming Wednesday we mark the anniversary of the closure on August 14th, 1967, of most of Britain’s so-called “pirate” offshore radio stations that characterised the British music scene in the 1960s and changed the face of both British broadcasting and popular music forever.

In what has become an annual event, on Radio Riel’s Main Stream we’ll remember the demise of the “Pirates”, with the music of the 1960s interspersed with actual radio jingles and trailers of the stations, plus one of the first audio documentaries on offshore radio in Europe: The History of Offshore Radio by Paul Harris.

Tune in on Wednesday for We Love The Pirate Stations!
