Before Pump up the Volume: Pirates of London

Listening to ‘On The Run’ – a documentary about London Pirate Radio from the closure of the pirate ships in 1967 to the opening of the first commercial radio stations in 1973, made at the time it’s a fascinating piece of mostly long-forgotten history. Covering the likes of Radio Jackie, Radio Free London and the Helen Network, this is Pump Up The Volume London style, and 20 years before!

Well worth listening to – and you can download it for free here. Thanks to Elrik Merlin on Twitter for letting me know about this.
