By the time the act came into force on the 14’th August 1967, the way radio was done and it’s personality-driven style had been turned upside down by the radio pirates! Many famous names began their careers on the likes of Radio Caroline and this show sees Mark Stafford presenting a three hour special looking back at those days and charting the lead up the Marine Offences Act’s introduction and effect on pirate radio.
