Fred Kooreman's Radio Caroline documents - page 1

Although the mv Mi Amigo was the home to Radio Caroline South, for some unknown reason, the documents that Fred found on board all relate to Radio Caroline North and date from 1964 and 1965. Alan Turner has very kindly identified some of the initials found on the documents. We start with some advertising logs. This one is from 8am on Friday 25th September 1964:

Caroline North advertising log

Alan Turner writes: “All the red ink entries are mine. The ‘mjm’ is Mike Marriott. The ‘JG’ is a Jerry Glover or Grover. I'm not sure about the surname. The grey cells fail me on this one. He was a studio technician.”
It was Jerry Grover. In February 2009 he wrote to The Pirate Radio Hall Of Fame: “I am the Jerry Grover mentioned (on your website) and I recognise my initials with the characteristic three full stops. It's amazing to see that this document has survived for so long. I joined Caroline North in June 1964, shortly after leaving the BBC where I had started my engineering training. I left in January 1965 after an acrimonious dispute over some expenses that were owed to me! I thoroughly enjoyed my brief career in offshore broadcasting. I went on to work for Piccadilly Radio in Manchester for 16½ years, then I went back to the BBC and ended my working life at BBC local radio in Manchester (then Greater Manchester Radio and now renamed Radio Manchester). I have been retired for 8 years, and it sure beats working!” Our grateful thanks to Jerry for getting in touch.
