10 Years of Offshore Radio (1974)

2 x Vinyl, LP, Mono
A documentary double LP with "sound recordings of the highlights of British offshore radio 1964 - 1974. Including S.O.S. dramas, jingles & commercials."Set list & more here.
Assembled on these records are a collection of historic & valuable recordings from a unique era in radio broadcasting.
During the mid sixties, when the offshore radio stations were at their peak, an estimated 35 million listeners a day, turned these broadcasts, which were beamed from defunct ships and rusty war-time forts, scattered around our coast.
May these lps serve as a reminder, a permanent record and a keep-sake of some of the happy, historic & dramatic moments in the history of offshore radio broadcasting.
Take care of these recordings, as they are sure to become even more valuable in the years to come. (lp notes)

Well hit me up on my link to the blog DU as I just ripped some treats tonight...Mingus, Coltrane, Dolphy, Coltrane, Crusaders - Street Life, Bongos & The Groovies, The Sunshine Band...man, I get away with so much--away from the norm I think at the DU blog there..ha ha
