The fans' memorabilia

Did you correspond with any pirate DJs during the sixties, seventies or eighties? Or visit one of the stations and take some photos? Maybe you went to one of the many promotional events. If you have any mementoes - pictures, letters, stickers, anything that other fans might be interested in seeing - please contact The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame.
