On location with the pop pirates: Radio Caroline at 50

Easter Sunday 1964 saw the launch of legendary radio station Radio Caroline. Moored off the Essex coast it brought pop radio to the UK in a way that had never been done before. The station and others like it, revolutionised music radio in the UK.

As a lifelong fan of offshore radio I was determined not to miss out on the 50th anniversary celebrations. I made the long trip from Cheltenham to Walton-on-the-Naze to capture the 50th anniversary celebrations, organised by former Ross Revenge captain Tony “Captain Campbell” Haggis.
