The Music from the Boats That Rocked


A guest star radio DJ presents an evening of music from the Golden Era of Radio when the BBC was ignoring pop music and the Pirates ruled the airwaves.

A multitude of 1960s/70s performers – including THE HONEYCOMBS, the legendary singer TONY BURROWS (Famous for his work with The Ivy League, The Flower Pot Men, White Plains, The Pipkins, Edison Lighthouse, The First Class, Brotherhood of Man) … and special surprise guests – perform an evening of music from the Golden Era of pirate radio.

A unique mix of chart hits, turntable hits, jingles and especially memories from Radio Caroline & Radio London have all been put together to commemorate 50 years since the ‘Marine Offences Act’ of 1967 outlawed and eventually closed down the offshore radio stations. There will also be tributes to the many legendary DJ’s who braved the sea as well as the Navy to create a whole new pop music sound: Tony Blackburn, Ed Stewart. Kenny Everett, Dave Cash and John Peel, creator of The Perfumed Garden, to name but a few.

A fun night, with prizes, nostalgia and memory-jerking music. Get ready for ‘We Love the Pirate Stations’, ‘Caroline’, and an incredible playlist of your favourite songs that were played on the pirate stations. A unique, one-off show, never done before – and unlikely ever to be performed again!
