Pop Music Pirates – podcastavsnitt från History channel

History channel har gjort ett podcastavsnitt om Radio Caroline och de andra radiopirater som sände från Nordsjön på 1960-talet. Lyssna!

”August 14, 1967. Off the coast of England, a group of pirate ships has been fighting to stay afloat. These are pirates of a particular kind—less sword fighting and treasure hunting, more spinning records and dancing late into the night. For the past few years, these boats have made it their mission to broadcast popular music from international waters. But at the stroke of midnight, a new law will make these pirate radio DJs criminals. Some of them, aboard Radio Caroline, are willing to risk it. How did a group of young rebels launch an offshore radio station that gave the BBC a run for its money? And how did they change the course of music history?”

Programmet är på 32 minuter.
