27/04/12 Tim Bartlett says: "I have recently been going through some reel-to-reel tapes of my father's, and have found a Radio London recording. Specifically, I found messages from the DJs on their thoughts on Radio London closing, so presumably from 1967. I am not sure if this is 'Their Final Hour', of which I understand there are many copies, but, I am wondering if anyone would be interested in an MP3/WAV dub of it, before it moves back to my attic and may never see the light of day again! I cannot give the tapes over, as the tapes also contain personal recordings.: email@example.com
Chris Ridley says: "I have a large collection of British Offshore and Irish Landbased pirate radio recordings and documentaries, if anybody would like to build up their recordings collection, I would be delighted to swap recordings as MP3 files on CDs. E-mail me for my latest list of recordings: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob Glen writes: "Hi to all who have exchanged memories with
me in the past. I am back after a long stint of working away, nevertheless,
my collection has expanded immensely, especially my collection of 77 WABC shows
and jingles. I have also got a huge amount of never-heard-before jingles and
station promo's from the late 60s, as featured on the major American top 40
stations. I have recordings from all the British pirate stations (e.g. Caroline,
England, London, etc., etc.) These are from the 60s to the 80s. Anyone interested
in swapping or buying please contact me." email@example.com
Eric Lawton says: "I am currently building up my collection of offshore radio shows
from mainly the 60s and 70s. I have shows and clips from RNI, Radio Caroline,
Radio London, Radio England plus a few recordings from Voice of Peace. I also
have a load of shows from BBC Radio 1 from 1960 - 1981. If anyone would like
to do swaps with me, I would be delighted to. I am prepared to sell mp3 discs
with about 20 - 25 shows on each to anyone who wants to start their collection
up, but would much prefer to do swaps and trades." firstname.lastname@example.org
Steinkrauss has a big list from all 'Pirates' to
swop and wishes to exchange recordings on cassette or CD; also in MP3. He will
swop any offshore recordings from the good old 60s and 70s, also RNI Recordings
from 1970-74. email@example.com
Wilkins says: 'I have many recordings of all the offshore stations of the
60's and in exchange I am looking for good quality recordings of Radio 270 and
Radio Caroline North, especially from the 14th August 1967 from 18.30 hours onwards
and any recordings of Don Allen.' Colin is also seeking recordings of 'I Wanna
Go Back There Again' by US singer Karen Young. During the Big L 2000 and 2001RSLs,
Colin made some recordings, and would love to swop tapes with others who did so
on different days from him. Colinw.Photographer@btinternet.com
appeal: Does anyone have a recording of Gene Pitney's visit to Big L on June
8th 1965? Gene is also believed to have visited Caroline that day, so there
may have been interviews on both stations. If you can help, please contact Mary
