More RNI

The nerve centre of the whole operation is two turntables on a bench in a room (cabin actually…) with scruffy pegboard walls. Well what did you expect ??  The analogue early 1970s is a world away from the computer-programmed radio stations of today. No computer screens to look at. Just a board reminding them of the station id.

Here is a short extract from Radio Northsea International one evening in late August 1974. Its lo-fi because I recorded it on my primitive equipment a few days before the offshore pirate radio station  closed down for good. The DJ sitting on the chair in the photo  and playing the records is Robin Banks (Adcroft ?).
