Pirates of the Airwaves

Jan 11 2023 • 51 mins

For this first episode of 2023 the tables have been turned on your host by Lawrie Hallett, and the subject of the podcast is me. I would like to point out that this was not my idea, it was Lawrie’s, who incidentally is the guest on the next episode. He came up with the idea when I went to interview him at his place of work just before Christmas. As usual we talk about life in pirate radio and beyond, including how I got involved, why I blame the IRA for the loss of two transmitters and my biggest regret in radio.
