Celebrate Offshore Radio in style

To mark the 40th anniversary of 'pirate' radio pioneers being forced off the air, the Radio Academy is celebrating their achievements with an afternoon of audio, movies and memories this Saturday. A change of venue has been organised due to overwhelming demand for tickets.

The Radio Academy has invited dozens of former offshore disc-jockeys to gather at Sugar Reef in London to relive the golden era of music radio. Some guests are famous names, still successfully broadcasting today. Others moved on from radio when the pirates closed down and now work in different fields altogether. But all of them have fond memories of those pioneering days and will be sharing their stories with fans, listeners and the current generation of broadcasting professionals. A number are flying in especially from Australia and Canada to attend.

The event kicks off with The Sound of the Nation – looking back at the history of Radio Caroline from Easter Sunday 1964 and ends with No Man will Ever Forget, with Robbie Dale and Johnnie Walker remembering Monday August 14th 1967.

Other events include a look at Big L and The Jocks who Rocked the Ocean. Tickets are available from [link=http://www.radioacademy.org.uk/record.jsp?type=event&ID=81]Abi[/link] at the Radio Academy.
