    So for the pirates: (to name a few)

    Radio Caroline (now streaming online & 648khz AM sharing Manx Radio's frequency)

    I forgot about Radio Luxembourg and Emporer Rosko!!

    Also Stuart Henry and his wife Ollie presented on Luxembourg

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Ah the good old days of the pirates, Caroline, London, even my strict father would tune in to a pirate station on Sunday lunchtimes because they had the Jim reeves show on called Radio 390 which i think was an old ww2 fort in the Thames estuary, in the 80s i would listen to the antics of Laser 558 all the hits, all the time, wasnt too keen for awhile then on Caroline because they went thru a phase of just playing album tracks.

    With Radio Caroline, Ross Revenge, or was it Mi Amigo? started to drift into our three mile limit, here in the UK. after engine failure

    Within our three mile limit they would have been subject to the Maritime Offences Act and be arrested

    Fortunately they restarted the engine and stayed outside our limit

    So that's two fingers up at the authorities lol
