A pirate radio museum has popped up in Clacton, as Radio Mi Amigo gets ready to broadcast from Harwich.
Ray Anderson has opened the Anarchy on the Airwaves exhibition
just yards away near from where the Radio Caroline pirate ship Mi Amigo was moored off the Essex coast as broadcasting started in March 1964.
And from August 14th for four days, Radio Mi Amigo will be on-air on 106.8 FM and online from Harwich from Lightvessel LV18 at lv18.org.
Presenters on the station will include Tony Currie, Enda Caldwell, Bart Selfie, Neon Nancy, Keith Skues, Garry Lee, Roger Day, Kenny Tosh and more.
Both events are the final series of celebrations of 50 years since the pirate radio stations started in the UK.
