"Wagoner's Walk" on Radio Two, twice a day.   "The Archers" on Radio Four, still going.  Tony Hancock did a version of it called "The Bowmen"

A list of the pirates would not be complete without a mention of Screaming Lord Sutch out on the Shivering sands forts

Used to religiously tune in (valve set) to Jack Jackson's Juke Box Show on a Sunday evening. Great stuff. This was before Priate Stations.
Dan Dare was in the Eagle comic and nothing to do with Luxembourg but I follwed his exploits with great interest.

When the pirate radio stations started the first one I heard was Caroline. Later on Radio London had better reception in Gravesend. That is all about 50 years ago now!  :)
There is still the third Caroline ship still about. The plan was to moor it at Gravesend and use it for local radio but it has ended up at Bradwell Essex.   http://www.radiocaroline.co.uk/#ross_revenge.html

As an 18 /19 yr old when the Pirate stations started broadcasting I thought they were great. Pop music all day, up until then there was only the light programme the best bit being Top Twenty presented by Alan Freeman on a Sunday afternoon and the very poor reception of Radio Luxemberg in the evenings.

How about the pirate radio stations ,any memories in that direction?maybe the start of'"modern"type radio presentation.Though it assuredly made the dear old BBC take a good look at itself,the establishment had to close it down,think of the damage caused by the introduction of ''free thinking'and uncontrolled reporting. To the masses ,I think the mandate was "close down at any cost" just my opinion  of course ,but interested to hear other opinions .

Is that how it's supposed to read, conan?

The bit about ISIRTA,yes,apart from the bit right at the top,where that came from I have no idea.Normally I preview posts before sending them but that one must have slipped through the radar.

I haven't the faintest idea smiler,but can assure you I was as sober as some judges when I posted it,hopefully Kyn can ...ah....compress the mistake down to more managable proportions

don't forget

We mustn't forget 'I'm sorry I'll read that again' almost a forerunner for Monty Python it starred John Cleese,Graham Chapman,Bill Oddie,and Tim brook-Taylor and was wonderfully silly.

First broadcast in 1964 it ran until 1972 and had a few reunions and specials after that date

Valentine Dyall introduced "The Man in Black", if I remember rightly.
