Please Don’t Take Them Away - The Story Of The Great British Pirate Era” - A Stafford's World Special
We’re broadcasting this special show in 3 weekly parts starting this week
On Sunday August 14th 2022, it will be exactly 55 years since probably the most exciting era in British Commercial Radio came to an end, with the introduction of the UK Government’s Marine Offence Act.
During the previous three years British Radio Listeners had seen a complete transformation in their radio landscape. In place of the limited pop music choice offered by the BBC Light Programme, listeners learned to love Offshore Radio Stations such as Radio Caroline, Radio London, Swinging Radio England, Radio 270 and many more.
55 years on, for those who experienced that period the great memories still remain. So much so, that a number of large commercial radio stations are planning to commemorate the anniversary, this coming weekend.
“Please Don’t Take Them Away - The Story Of The Great British Pirate Era” is a 3 hour series across 3 weekly parts. Courtesy of Stafford’s World.
“Please Don’t Take Them Away - The Story Of The Great British Pirate Era” includes exclusive interviews with many of the leading names who broadcast from around the coast of Britain during that era. These include…. Dave Cash, Robbie Dale, Tony Prince, Roger “Twiggy” Day, Don Allen, Johnnie Walker, Carl Conway, John Peel, Martin Kayne and other presenters who made the era what it was.
The story also features countless off-air extracts and a soundtrack showcasing the great music played on the Offshore Stations. It is the story of the mid-60s, music wise and culture-wise. Offshore Radio was the background to this and it will appeal to listeners who enjoy the regular Stafford’s World Shows.
