Radio Caroline's “curly-headed kid in the third row”, Steve Young, was one of the organisers of the reunion. We are extremely grateful to him for this report and for his photographs of the event. Steve writes:
“The first ever North American Pirate Radio Deejay Reunion took place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on July 19th and 20th. Close to a dozen pirate deejays from
Australia, the U.K and Canada gathered to share their memories and to enjoy the sunny weather in the beautiful city of Vancouver.
“The official reunion itinerary commenced with a television interview on CITY-TV after which the participants gathered at a waterfront bistro for some thirst-quenching adult beverages prior to
boarding the S.S. Constellation for a two and a half hour sunset dinner cruise in the waters surrounding the city of Vancouver. It was a wonderful opportunity to reminisce about ‘stormy days at sea’ and to
enjoy the beautiful Vancouver skyline from the calmer waters of Coal Harbour, English Bay and False Creek. The first day ended back at the bistro where the group wound up the evening on the patio overlooking the
North Shore mountains, drinks in hand and memories being shared.
“That evening the final gathering took place in the offices of Mercer Advertising on Granville Island. This was an opportunity to watch videos of various pirate radio documentaries, to swap
memorabilia and to listen to recordings of old shows. A lot of forgotten memories and events were recalled and many friends from near and far, some no longer with us, were called to mind.
