Legendary 1960s DJ Emperor Rosko returns  to launch Last Pirate FM


Emperor Rosko, the legendary 1960’s DJ who made his name on offshore station Radio Caroline South, has spectacularly announced his return to broadcasting.  

Rosko, who was also one of the founding DJ’s of Radio 1, announced his return from a ship in the River Thames. The announcement saw Rosko sail a replica Radio Caroline ship down the Thames to Tower Bridge.

Rosko is launching Last Pirate FM, a DAB community radio station, to mark Remember A Charity in Your Will Week 2017.

It is hoped that by celebrating the legacy of Radio Caroline, the baby boomer generation who grew up with the likes of Emperor Rosko & Tony Prince will be encouraged to leave their own legacy to the next generation by leaving a gift in their Will.

From Monday 11th September, Rosko (real name Mike Pasternak) will take Last Pirate FM on a regional roadshow, broadcasting live from 10am-1pm each day, which will take the message of the importance of gifts in Wills across the UK.

Tony Prince, another former Radio Caroline DJ, will rejoin his old colleague Emperor Rosko and broadcast a daily hour-long pre-recorded show on Last Pirate FM.

Emperor Rosko comments, ‘ I am delighted to be back in the UK to launch Last Pirate FM. I loved my time here in the 1960’s and 1970’s, so the chance to come back to do on a radio roadshow that celebrates the best of that era was too good an opportunity to turn down. I look forward to visiting some of my old UK haunts and encouraging people to have their say on the world they want to pass on.’

Tune into Last Pirate FM on 11-15 September on DAB radio or listen online at www.mixcloud.com/lastpirate
