Radio Caroline - returns on the Ross Revenge

Episode 525,  Aug 19, 2012, 04:34 PM

Radio Caroline was a survivor. Probably the most fondly-remembered of the 60s pirates, Caroline was the one which continued as the 1967 UK legislation prohibited Brits from playing a part in the stations. Caroline was more than a business, it was a cause.

As her ships floundered, with the Mi Amigo suffering in bad 1980 weather, she needed a new home. August 1983 saw her return, on board the Ross Revenge, with its 92m mast.

Hear here the early return broadcasts from the Ross Revenge, with a calm Tom Anderson battling with generator noise.

She broadcast until 1987, when the weather, rather than the law, saw her wave a final farewell.
