The story of Pirate Radio and the Summer of Love 1967
Join one of the only Offshore Radio DJ’s still on our airwaves for a fascinating look at one of the cultural turning-
Pirate Radio was launched at a time when there was no outlet to listen to popular music other than the BBC Light Programme or Radio Luxembourg. It was these stations and DJ’s who were as much a part of Britain’s rock and pop music revolution as the musicians themselves.
1967 marked the height of the cultural revolution that was Swinging Sixties. Britain led the world in fashion, art and ground breaking music. Twiggy became one of the world’s first super models and there was the meteoric rise of Beatlemania and the emergence of groups such as the Rolling Stones, the Who & Pink Floyd amongst many others.
