Pirate Radio...

The new title for the Boat that Rocked...
Radio Caroline and Ronan O'Riley did more for changing Britain than any government in my life time.
An entrepreneur and an Irish entrepreneur that created a big noise from a small idea.
Richard Curtis captured the 60's in this film: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1131729/
I had a relationship with Rowena who in this film is depicted as Felicity a lesbian, she was the cook on Radio Caroline, she climbed the mast hung up her knickers and said " if you can get them you can have me" a great girl.
A terrific 'snapshot in time, as is London Babylon which I will watch next..http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1937419/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
be lucky...:cool:
Ps: 25 million people listened daily to Radio Caroline..

Without a doubt radio Caroline changed forever how good music was delivered to the listening public. As a lad it was never off in my home. :up

I wonder what Horace Batchelor of Keynsham, spelt KEYNSHAM, is doing now!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Horace died on 8th January 1977.

Batchelor was a watercolour painter of many subjects. His studio was the entertainment room at the side of a detached house, a sparsely furnished, bow-windowed room with cocktail bar and steel shutters. He spent his last years mainly in one small room equipped with a chaise longue and two televisions, one colour, the other monochrome, rented from Granada TV Rental at Knowle, Bristol. His housekeeper communicated with visitors and tradesmen. His son took over the business of results prediction. Following his death in 1977, The Times published his will on 3 March of that year, showing he left just under £150,000.
