WHEN PIRATES RULED THE AIR WAVES

The first chapter of our new series “When Pirates Ruled The Air Waves” will be broadcast on Three Valleys Radio on Wednesday 14thSeptember at 15.00 (3.00pm) and feature the very first Off Shore Broadcast from Radio Caroline South on 28thMarch 1964. The programme will be repeated at 15.00 (3.00pm) on Sunday.
Reminisce the actual start of the Radio Revolution of the 1960’s with these unique recordings.

Three Valleys Radio are delighted to announce that we have acquired the rights to broadcast hundred’s of hours of recordings from the 60’s 70’s and 80’s of the offshore radio stations that were positioned off the Essex coast during that era.

Courtesy of Ray Robinson, who has amassed this huge collection of top quality recordings, we plan to air a show called “When Pirates ruled the airwaves” twice a week starting in September.

Among the stations we shall be covering are Radio Caroline (North & South), Radio London Big L, Radio North Sea international, Swinging Radio England, Radio 355, Britain Radio, Tower Radio, Radio Atlanta, Laser 558 all featuring many well known D.J’s including Kenney Everett, Tony Blackburn, DLT, Robbie Dale, Johnnie Walker, Tommy Vance, Roger Day, Dave Cask, Emperor Rosko and many more.

We hope during the series to be able to speak with some of the D.J’s mentioned above and feature as much background news and history as we can gather.

The first edition of this new show will be broadcast on Wednesday at 3.00 pm and repeated at 3.00pm on Sunday afternoon.

This really does give you the opportunity to go back 50-60 years and hear what the radio revolution really sounded like.
