PIRATE RADIO

VA - A Tribute To The Pirate Stations 1964 - 1974 Vol. 01 - 07 [2010] (7 x CD's)

This 7 CD set is a tribute to The Pirate Stations (1964-1974). On April 21, 2010, it will be 50 years since Radio Veronica celebrated 50 years  since it first began broadcasting from a ship just outside the territorial waters. It ushered in the era of the 'pirate station' phenomenon. Radio Caroline, Radio London, Radio Northsea International and many others followed Veronica's initiative. On this  box set, all the great radio hits from the most important years of pop history (1964-1974) are listed by Adje Bouman. At the time, Adje was a technician at Radio Veronica and was not called 'the master' for nothing. Each CD has its own theme; the Adje Bouman Top Ten, the Lex Harding Show, the Rob Out Show, etc. Not only the big hits are featured, the typical 'radio records' are also present, all this is interspersed with jingles and so these shows seem to be alive again brought. As a bonus, the DVD with the movie 'The Boat That Rocked' has been added, to give an idea of ​​what it was like on a 'pirate ship' at the time. (not included)

Fortunately, once again a collection box with less well-known pop music from the golden period 1964-1974. Be surprised, you will surely find new gems among them! Remarkably good sound quality of the music on the CDs, which are all nicely designed as black vinyl discs, complete with original label labels from yesteryear. The rest of the box also looks attractive, accompanied by an informative booklet.

There are many compilations, with music from the 60's & 70's, on which you come across the same 'known' songs over and over. Only a few distinguish themselves through a good mix of well-known hits, but also (totally) unknown work. This is one such collection, curated with care. Hopefully there will indeed be a sequel soon with 'one hit wonders' as indicated in the foreword by Ad Bouwman. (Amazon)

  2. I grew up listening to radio stations and especially the USAF Base Station, which was located in Heraclion Crete. Those years it was the best [if not the only] radio station to listen and learn about the "international" music.
    Thanks BB!!

  11. Thank you soooo much for this collection. I grew up with Caroline, London and Veronica, been collecting actual recordings from the stations over the years.
    Note - I did notice that CD6 was 84 minutes in length and that each track had a long (9-10 second) silence at the end - after editing these out brought it down to to a more manageable length of about 79 minutes.
    Thanks for all yoiur effort BB

    1. Hi LeKermitage,
      There are so many memories to be had here. Glad you enjoyed this pick up.
      Thanks for the 9-10 sec silence comment, probably should clean it up later.

      Cheers.
