A to Z of Offshore Radio

August 1, 2011

When I acquired this tape 40 (!!) years ago it was mostly documenting surprisingly recent history of just 4 or 5 years earlier. Perhaps more extensive versions of these recordings are in circulation but this 90 minute tape gives you a pretty good idea of what could be found on your transistor radio in the 1960s besides the BBC. More odd stuff for my Audio Archive.

    Thanks for putting this one up. Nowadays our ears are stuffed full of choice and we are all saturated to numbness and its all taken so much for granted. Easy audio pickings wherever you go and never quite as “special” as it was way back in the 60s and 70s. Nostalgic but true. I like what we have now but it all seems so ordinary ……. Maybe I should all take a media “raincheck” from time to time in the hope that it might become a little bit fresher when I return?
