Music Heritage London is proud to be collaborating with some of the world’s most iconic music related brands including the 60s pirate radio station, Radio Caroline.
“Radio Caroline was founded in 1964 to play current popular music not being aired by the BBC. Caroline achieved huge popularity other than from the Government or a succession thereof who spent the next 36 years trying to close the station down.
A total determination to continue, created a legend and even when the station was shipwrecked in 1991, Caroline started all over from scratch. Using present day technology Radio Caroline can be heard globally at www.radiocaroline.co.uk with a service of album rock or sixties pop, also on DAB in various locations and now on 648 Medium Wave over large parts of South East England.”
