Pirate Radio Documentary


Something a little different now but I though some of you, especially readers from the UK might get a kick out of this.

No pun intended with the ‘kick’ remark, as this short documentary about the history of Pirate Radio in London was commissioned by Palladium Boots as part of their ‘Explorations’ series. Don’t let that put you off though, it’s actually a fascinating (albeit brief at 16mins) look at those DJs and radio techs who (like us music bloggers) can’t help but let their love of music vent somewhere.

Having grown up listening to pirate radio, just the atmosphere that this documentary provokes puts a nostalgic smile on my face.
