  1. Ahoy! Thanks for the offer, PowerMusic, but I have another idea. If anybody wants to download the recordings of Absolute Radio 60s pirate programmes, send me a PM and I will help you get to hear and download them. I am unable to publish the links on this website, so you will need to send me a message.
  2. Ahoy! I can make available all 6 hours of Absolute Radio's pirate programmes from 12 August. I am not sure if I can provide links to recent radio broadcasts though. Maybe Vincent, or someone else, can let me know whether I can make available the recordings via this website.
  3. Hi Gerard, Thanks for your message. Well done for spotting the mistake I made with the date! Apologies and thank you for pointing this out. The correct date is 25/08/85. This chart show was broadcast on many commercial ILR stations across the UK. Further information can be found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Network_Chart_Show Best wishes, Doug.

  5. Henk, you are not wrong in saying 'Sounds Fine with Caroline'. Everything Sounded Great on 558! Thanks for these recordings.

  8. Yes, Ben, that was them! I recall the last Weekly Report being sent out the same week the Ross Revenge was raided. The 80s was a great period for radio. The offshore stations and the Irish and UK pirates on medium wave had listeners spoilt for choice what to listen to. Great days.
  9. Hi Ben, Thanks for these Anoraks UK recordings. Seeing the tape sleeves brings back memories of receiving AUK's Weekly Report through my letterbox every Saturday morning. I also bought a lot of tapes from Barry and Ruth, but no longer have them. Thanks again.

  12. Hi Jorge, Sorry, I do not have the programme you are after.
  13. I bought WRTH for many years. It was a great book to have alongside my Grundig Yacht Boy 400 when I used to be a DXer.

  15. Hi Omnivoor, True, age is just a number, but were there a time machine available, I'd jump in that and go back to my younger days.😃
  16. Time flies so fast that it is hard to believe it was 31 years ago today when the last broadcast was heard from Radio Caroline aboard the MV Ross Revenge. I was just 27 years old at the time...now I'm becoming an old man! Since Radio Caroline finished, there have been many other stations calling themselves Radio Caroline - but I think true radio anoraks know that there was only one Radio Caroline - and that Radio Caroline, which we all loved, broadcast from a ship at sea, in international waters. NEVER accept any imitations!

  19. Hello John, Somebody gave me a load of discs with radio recordings on, and these are what I am uploading here. Some of the recordings may already be out there on the internet, but I don't have the time to check if this is the case. The person who gave me the discs died shortly after he gave them to me, so obviously, I can't ask him where he got the recordings.

  21. 32 Years ago on this very day saw the raid on the Ross Revenge. It's hard to believe it was such a long time ago, but thoughts of that day have always remained with me. Radio Caroline, from a ship at sea, may be gone, but this brilliant station will never be forgotten.
