The magic of 60s pirate radio remembered…

Urban Rainbow TunnelVia the magic of BBC iPlayer, I have just caught up with Wednesday’s Steve Wright show on Radio 2, and, in particular, an interview he did with Johnnie Walker and Keith Skues about pirate radio in the sixties. The interview was interspersed with sixties music and clips from Radio Caroline, Radio London etcetera.

It’s a particularly joyous piece of radio and is worth listening to, if you haven’t already, here at about 1’37”.

Johnnie Walker mentioned that he is doing a series of interview shows at the Edinburgh Festival. This week he interviewed Tony Benn, who, of course, axed the pirate stations. No laughs there then….
