Radio Mi Amigo returns to pirate radio event

This year’s nine day Pirate Radio event on Harwich Quay has attracted 35 DJs to transmit from the classic Light vessel LV18 on Radio Mi Amigo.

Serving the North Essex and South Suffolk area, Radio Mi Amigo will return to the LV18, which featured in the film ‘The Boat that Rocked’, on July 30th for nine days.

This year’s on­air team will include Roger “Twiggy” Day, Emperor Rosko, Tony Prince, Dave Rogers, Stephanie Hirst, Tony Currie, Mandy Marton, Enda Caldwell, Neon Nancy, Sharon Smith, Dave Kent and Harwich’s own Liana Bridges, who will be broadcasting ‘live’ from the Harwich Sea Festival on Sunday 31st.

Radio Mi Amigo will be taking advantage of a restricted service broadcast licence from Ofcom to transmit a nine day service as a tribute to the Offshore Pirate Radio Stations Radio Caroline, Radio London and several others that appeared off the coast of Harwich in the 1960s.

LV18 will broadcast from her new permanent berth by the Ha’penny Pier, enabling members of the public to not only visit the classic vessel but to meet the DJs and have an opportunity to be interviewed on­ air.

The station will also carry news of local events, interviews with surprise guests and promote the Harwich area. Other events planned are ‘Audiences with the Pirates’ shows at the Electric Palace Cinema and the arrival of the ‘Mods and Rockers’ on Harwich Quay with scooters and motorcycles.
