Stuart Aiken's recordings of Radio Caroline South

Stuart Aiken

During the sixties, correspondent Stuart Aiken was living in the Lincolnshire Wolds at Spilsby “about 70 miles, I guess, from the Mi Amigo”. As a fan of the offshore stations, Stuart was lucky to own a tape recorder but, like many other school-age enthusiasts, found the cost of recording tape to be prohibitive. He used - and reused - the same reels of tape over and over again which means that, sadly, he doesn't now have a large archive. But he does have a lot of short clips of various shows and he has very kindly edited a number of them together to make an evocative montage of the output of Radio Caroline South as it sounded in 1967.
It includes a number of familiar show openings, theme tunes, jingles, promotions, drop-ins and DJs including Robbie Dale, Dave Lee Travis, Johnnie Walker, Keith Hampshire, Ross Brown, Roger Day and, er, Rodney Fortescue! It should bring back happy memories for a lot of people.
