The original owner ran a publishing company in the mid 1970's, predominantly dealing
with Pirate & Offshore radio periodicals, books and magazines.
With the impending 10th anniversary of the closure of the UK offshore / pirate radio stations
in August 1977, he decided to organise an exhibition and seminar,
and invited a number of ex-pirate DJs and presenters to attend.
The venue for the event was the Centre Hotel at Heathrow airport,
and the date was set for August 13th & 14th 1977.
The event was a great success, and tickets sold out.
There was even a "live" link up with the Radio Caroline ship Mi Amigo during the proceedings.
