35 years ago radio Mi Amigo started transmitting from their ship on the northsee and today the people from the resurrected (internet) radiostation Mi Amigo are celebrating this milestone on the last radioship the Jenny Baynton. So today i am enjoying real radio on the good old mediumwave like i did in the good old days. This is how radio should be made. Discjocky's who pick their music themselfes and babling about whatever comes to mind or about what is happening on board. No planned format or a director who decides what the dj's have to say but live radio, a bit chaotic at times.
I'ts remarkable that radio Mi Amigo started in 1974 because that year there was a new law in Holland that made an end to the offshore pirate radiostations. RNI and radio Veronica had to stop transmitting on 31 August 1974 exactly 35 years ago tomorrow. So tomorrow the last day of radio Veronica will be re-transmitted on the mediumwave from the Jenny Baynton. The Jenny Baynton is a former light ship rebuild as a radioship for radio Waddenzee and radio Seagull. The people from radio Waddenzee are all fans from the old pirate radiostations which is why they sometimes lend out their ship for such occasions.
There is a group of volunteers who keep the Jenny Baynton in good shape but the Norderney, the ship used by radio Veronica is lying abandoned in a dock in Antwerp. She's for sale but if nobody buys her she will be lying there until she sinks. She's in a bad shape. Crying or Very sad

Yeah cool Very Happy
I´m too young for that era but I was quite a bit into the Dutch, German and UK SW & MW pirates throughout the 90ies until very recently, in fact Smile

I have just realized that´s why I like the blogtalkradio shows so much, with their interactivity elements Surprised it´s really a bit the same, with listeners calling in, leaving feedback via chatB; main difference is that, unlike Dan´s "ScamBaiters", Star Club Radio, Radio Baroness , Likedeeler etc. do not call a lad for you Smile but it has/had a bit of the atmosphere IMO

Radio Hauraki in the mid 60's in New Zealand was another great pirate station, a couple of ship wrecks just added to the charisma.

It went mainstream once it got land based permits though,and slowly lost the edge it used to have.

I did quite a bit of Pirate Radio listening in the mid 80s,both on SW and MW.I toyed with the idea of doing it myself on MW,but a close friend was an FCC field agent,and I really had no desire to meet him on a professional level.

I listened to Radio Caroline North a lot as a boy, there were no legal stations playing pop music then, other than Radio Luxembourg, which could only be picked up at night.

After the Marine Offences Act, there was only Radio Nordsee.

I did see one of the pirate ships laid up in a harbour at Dover years ago, not sure which one. It was a rusty old thing, with the biggest masts ever.

Sky viewers in the UK can get Radio Caroline (now legal and shore based) on channel 0199.

^^^ Radio Caroline North .... SIGH!

Mid 1960's .... Sitting in my dad's garaged car twiddling the radio tuning button to find the signal, lying back with an illicit cigarette .... HAPPY DAYS!

Did you ever get the American Forces broadcasts?

@ Roycropper That ship is the Ross Revenge. It was the home of Radio Caroline, Radio Monique (Dutch) and Laser 558 since 1983. I listened many times to radio Monique and it's succesor Laser 558 until they stopped broadcasting late 80's Then there was only Caroline left until the ship was on drift en run on a sand bank. The Ross Revenge was the very last pirate radioship and she is still in Dover where a group of volunteers is bringing the grand old lady back to her former glory. http://www.rossrevenge.co.uk/
