|Found after 39 years! The World In Action report on pirate radio
that was broadcast in the Spring of 1966 recorded by me! This copy was made by
taping a microphone to the speaker of my TV in East Grinstead so the quality may
not be wonderful but the content is fascinating! Heavily compressed with mp3,
better quality available. 24 minutes of pure nostalgia!
|VERY rude jingles. You WILL know the tune but NOT the words! The
singers feeling fruity perhaps?
Thanks to KenR for permission to use.
For some reason some Real Media downloads sound very bitty when
using the latest Real player. If you want audio quality use an older player
which can be downloaded free from real.com.
Sorry, but it's not our fault.
|In the early '70's real piracy ruled the waves and somebody
tried to bomb RNI on the MEBO2. Here is the incident recorded on FM in Holland.
|Radio Caroline's bell was THE sound of the '60's. Here is the
original recording made with Tony Blackburn holding the microphone (I've got the
8mm to prove it!) By the way the recording was played at half speed as the bell
was too tinny as recorded!
This jingle is truly dreadful!
|This IS unique! Imagine the Caroline ship was ready to sail and
they had no jingles, so young Ronan went to a smoky basement in Dublin, used
their Hammond organ and they recorded all these classic jingles in one
afternoon. This is a direct dub from the original master tape. Want to hear it?
|London that's my home town! What became the virtual BigL theme
in the early days, often played up to the news.
Here complete in studio quality.
|Finally for now a recording that I made myself nearly 40 years
ago featuring Ed Stuart on a real Radio London broadcast with just the records
edited out. I guarantee that you won't have heard this before! 3 Meg download.
