James Gentles GM4WZP gave a great talk on 'Pirates - Offshore Radio from 1964 to 1974, ding-ding!' at the meeting on 8th November 2017. He covered the history of the pirate radio stations located in ships around the British Isles, including the best-known, Radio Caroline which used its famous "ding-ding" jingle. They all disappeared after the BBC introduced Radio 1 in 1974 to cater for the pop audience, and re-named the existing stations Radios 2, 3 and 4. REPORT
