Pirate Radio Reunion

July 13th, 2007 at 09:39pm

As discussed with 2UE’s (and former pirate radio DJ) John Kerr on Samuel’s Persiflage #4 last year, BBC Radio are putting together a tribute to pirate radio in the UK by setting up a special pirate radio reunion station, on a boat, off the coast of the UK. This will have a webstream so that those of us who aren’t in that part of the world can still enjoy the reunion.

With thanks to Irene in Brisbane for sourcing this, and Tim Gillett for allowing me to republish it, here is the schedule for the pirate radio reunion broadcast in UK time:

Thursday 9 August

6 – 10 Ray Clark
10 – 13 Dave Cash
13 – 16 Steve Scruton
16 – 19 Ian Wyatt
19 – 22 Tim Gillett
22 – 1 Keith Skues

*****************

Friday 10 August

4 – 7 Norman St John
7 – 10 Ray Clark
10 – 13 Dave Cash
13 – 16 Steve Scruton

**************

*********

Tuesday 14

0 – 2 Keith Skues
2 – 4 John Kerr
4 – 7 Norman St John
7 – 9 Ray Clark with Dave from 8
9 – 11 Steve Young
11 – 13 Johnnie Walker and friends – Tom Edwards + Keith Hampshire + Keith Skues + Dave Cash
13 – 15 – Steve Scruton and others
15 – 16 What Happened Next – Ray Clark’s doc

As you can see, John Kerr will be in his familiar middawn timeslot, and those of us here in Australia will be able to tune in to him during our daylight hours.

Pirate radio is an enormously important part of the history of UK radio, as it introduced commercial radio to the UK, and brought it in to the modern age. I wish John Kerr and the entire pirate radio crew, all the best for this reunion, to mark the 40th anniversary of the effective shutting down of the pirate stations on the 14th of August 1967.

    I agree Samuel, if it wasn’t for pirate radio, Liberace records might still be in the top ten.
    Good grief!
    I’m ashamed I typed that. May Elvis Presley have mercy on my soul.

    Had lunch the other day at Simpson’s with The Oldie Magazine and Johnny Walker spoke. He did love those days on Pirate Radio! Didn’t sound like the food was all too good though! Anyone know where Jimmy Henney and Ed Stuart are?
