Please Don’t Take Them Away – The Story Of The Great British Pirate Era
Tune in on Friday 30th September 2022 from 21:00 – 24:00 (yes, this is the Visions of the Past slot) and re-live the story of those wonderful radio stations that changed British radio forever.
You will witness a 3 hour tribute to the swashbuckling Offshore Radio Stations who were part of the Soundtrack Of the Swinging Sixties.
On Sunday August 14th 2022, it was 55 years since probably the most exciting era in British Commercial Radio came to an end, with the introduction of the British Government’s Marine Offence Act.
This documentary tells the full story of those great radio days. It also includes exclusive interviews with many of the leading names who broadcast from around the coast of Britain during that era. These include Dave Cash, Robbie Dale, Tony Prince, Roger “Twiggy” Day, Don Allen, Johnnie Walker, Carl Conway, John Peel, Martin Kayne & others who made the era what it was.
The story also features countless off-air extracts and a soundtrack showcasing the great music played on the Offshore Stations.
This unique show has been produced by Mark Stafford of Stafford’s World.
