They are broadcasting live from the M.V. Ross Revenge, which is currently moored in Tilbury Docks, Essex, whilst it’s being refurbished as a pirate radio museum.
Radio Caroline started in 1964 as the UK’s first offshore pirate radio station, their first ship sank in 1980, they returned from a new ship in 1983, which was sadly shipwrecked in 1990, but survived, but can never return to international waters as it’s not seaworthy and is subject to movement restrictions put in place by the UK government.
Lots of the old offshore DJs, several friends of mine from my pirate radio days, have returned to ‘The Lady’ and are staying onboard over the weekend to make this special broadcast.
