Hi Chris,

Thank you for the RNI documentary - What memories!

Must dig out my RNI LP's etc and review my files and have a good look through my RNI 'Souvenir books' again. I have several hours of audio in my archive but only one piece of tape, as far as I can remember, where I had a request/dedication (for my school friends at the time) played on the station.

Thank you also for the name check - I am pleased to know my message reached you.

All the best and I hope to catch more of Steam Fair FM next year. Many congrats too to all concerned for the 50th GDSF!

Regards and 73's,

Hi Chris, I just had to write to you to say just how much I enjoyed listening to Roger Day's final broadcast. The complete contrast in format after the MOA plugging major minor records, the change in jingles. And nice to hear the chatter of Roger Day again. Absolutely fabulous, I've listened to this recording 7 times I can't get enough of it. It's radio at it's best.

Keep up the good work of remembering this great era of radio.

I was at the 60's weekend on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway last weekend. You had an

information display in the Pickering station goods yard, on the Pirate radio stations of the 60's.

I was very interested in this information and display it was very well done,

with loads of history and information.

My local Pirate radio station was Caroline North, anchored off Ramsey Bay in the Isle of Man.

Many thanks

Hi Chris, I just wanted to say how much u I enjoy listening to your offshore Radio recordings bringing back the good sounds of radio as it was. I have been listening to your shows for over 3 years now and told my friends to listen.

It makes my Sundays as I look forward to hearing your offshore radio recordings, and listen on SoundCloud which is a great idea. Please keep up the good work....

Thanks! - James

Hello Chris,I would just like to say how much I enjoyed the two programmes about Laser 558. It reminded just how good Laser was.I have been a great fan of offshore radio since the start of Radio Caroline, and always listen to your programme, and think the one on Laser was the best yet.Keep up the good work.

Thanks for that nice historical program on the Offshore Pirates.

Hi Chris

I just wanted to say that I have been listening to you excellent show

It's a show I love to listen to as it brings back fabulous memories of how radio was

Hi Chris,

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed this weeks show with the opening of Caroline. I remember that so well. I was living in Whitstable in those days. With my Dansette on my pillow desperately trying to find something to listen too only to find a really strong silent carrier wave. I thought my radio must be faulty, then all of a sudden test transmission Radio Caroline on 199. Well the rest is history!! I loved the way on the mic opening you could here the generators. Great stuff, thank goodness people recorded these programmes as this will NEVER happen again.

Many thanks Chris,

Kind Regards,

Mike B (now in NZ)
