Post co-ordinated Anglo-Dutch raid that smashed and or removed most of the Radio Caroline transmission capability. Short of DJs, chief Radio Engineer Peter Chicago takes to the airwaves on 558 kHz, using mostly equipment donated to the ship and transmitter salvaged from bits and pieces that Peter and the crew managed to hide and protect during the raid.
Here, Chicago plays the records, makes announcements and sends coded messages to 'The Management' (or lack of it) on the last proper Pirate Radio station in the North Sea, anchored at The Falls Head, approx. 17 miles from the Thanet coastline. Peter did well! This recording made in Cambs and just listen to the audio quality, terrific considering it was recorded off AM with lightning crackles!
