AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE OPERATORS OF PIRATE MEMORIES:
2014 & 2017 have been very special years,
as it was 50 years since pirate radio
began, and closed in the UK.
'Pirate Memories' & the 'Flashback '67' Exhibition
have attended a number of events
to celebrate & commemorate
these important anniversaries.
We travelled hundreds of miles to
attend commemorations around the UK,
and want to continue to do this ....
But it costs quite a lot of money...
SO: .....Can You PLEASE help us:
We'd still like to put a working fund of around £1000 together,
to allow us to attend more events in 2018 and beyond,
......and to purchase further rare items for the exhibition
which could be lost forever if we don't step in.
If everyone who reads this donated
£10, $10, or 10 Euros,
we'd get to this target in a matter of weeks!
Fuel costs are our biggest expense when touring ....
In fact, at least 60% of the total costs go on travel.
We also have the upkeep and monthly fees of this website,
and general operational costs involved with keeping the contents of the exhibition safe & accessible.
At some stage, we'd still like to offer some practical items,
such a mugs, keyrings, and other point of sale material - branded with 'Pirate Memories' ....
In 2014, we attended
the 'Radio Caroline' 50th Birthday event at
Rochester in March,
A local event in Folkestone in April,
Met with 'Radio Sutch' in Herne Bay in May -
and we spent time in August & September on a cruise ship,
a lightship, and down on the seafront at Felixstowe.
In 2016, we worked with 'Radio Caroline' in August,
and also gave talks at several small events,
on the subject of Offshore Radio & 1960's culture.
2017 saw us in Pickering, North Yorkshire, Clacton,
London and Felixstowe with the 'Flashback '67' exhibition,
as well as continuing our talks to a number
of small social groups.
We are NOT going away or giving up, just because its
50 years since we enjoyed offshore radio.
We consider there is still a healthy interest in the subject,
and we want to be a part of it....
We want to see as many of you as possible in 2018
AND during the coming years
But most of all - we want YOU to see US....
With your help - we are making it happen.....
