  1. I assume this guy is making all this up??? I have never heard that name and there were no Mi Amigo dj's who served from 1/1/74 right through until the Magdalena. There have been many people in the UK over the years who have not quite told the truth about their involvement with offshore radio, e.g. Jim Richman, Mark Dean and more. They always get found out!!!😀 I believe this was Jerry Van Der Loo who broadcast for a week or so on the Dutch service in June 1973. He was live on the Mi Amigo.
  2. The above broadcast is from 15th October 1973. Old tapes were being played as the contract with Atlantis had finished and no new tapes had arrived on the ship. All the programmes were old including Bart Van Der Laar from 30th September 1973.
  3. Probably the best documentary produced about 242. There have been a few over the years by Radio Clyde and BBC Radio Scotland, which were good, but the Forth Radio Network was the first.
  4. Hi Louis I remember reading about a station called Radio Mercurius on 389 metres from Amsterdam in the mid to late 70's. I think it was also heard on the east coast of England. Can you tell me something about it??
  5. I can read a bit Leendert. I have been listening to Dutch radio since 1973.! However I also have Google translate! Some English speaking people wont make the effort to translate, then again I am Scottish!
  6. The book looks great. I am looking forward to my copy coming in the post!
  7. That's great, thanks Gerrit!

  9. This recording of Marc Van Amstel on RNI runs too fast. Could somebody with the necessary software adjust to the correct speed. Many thanks Ian http://www.mediafire.com/file/mkq8hmeydls36rc/05091973_0803-0900_MarcVanAmstel.mp3/file

  12. This was actually the second day of the World Service. It started on 22nd September.
  13. Was Radio Unique still a pirate in 1983????
  14. I just listened to the English programme and the dj says his name is Frank Koller. I think I have heard that name before. Was he involved in some hoaxes with somebody called Otten back in the early 70's???? From Hans Knot Report September 2006 (1) (edited) yes Koller and Otten were known for several businesses in that period. For a period they ran the Europop Magazine as well as the Europop discotheque and RNI Mobiele Discotheek, But they had not asked permission to use the name and made some money out of it. They tried to interfere with Caroline too and had an illegal landbased pirate station on 270 metres, I think on April 30th 1973. Also the ran a small hotel in Amsterdam. Gerard(Van Dam) came back to the persons Koller and Otten: I know Koller had the plans to buy the rights to organise the Caroline Road show early 1973. I thought that when he was willing to do this he first had to go out and getting an idea what Radio Caroline was and also how the atmosphere was on the radio ship. Leen himself met Koller (who once told he had been a deejay and another time a technician aboard the MV Mi Amigo) on the MV Mi Amigo when they both went out with a trip organised in 1973 by Rob Olthof (Foundation for Media Communication).
  15. Thanks for this Douwe. Do you know who was responsible for Radio 538???
