Overview

In an age when the airwaves were tightly controlled by the authorities, pirate radio was the illicit and illustrious haven for music-lovers across the nation.

From the first broadcast in 1964, the cowboys of the radio world fed their listeners’ desire for pop and rock music and, by doing so, changed British radio forever.

Through more than 100 crisp, black-and-white photographs, Pirate Radio: An Illustrated History brings to life the ‘golden years’ of pirate radio.

Featuring pictures of the crew – including famous DJ Tony Blackburn and founder Ronan O’Rahilly – the boats and the fans, this book takes the reader on a journey from the formative years of Radio Caroline, through its political persecution and beyond.

Written by former Radio Caroline DJ and current BBC Radio host Keith Skues and with photographs by David Kindred, Pirate Radio: An Illustrated History is a unique and beautifully appointed account of the age when the pirates ruled the airwaves.
