The Caroline Club

Many of of the offshore stations operated their own listeners' clubs. The first was The Caroline Club. This page contains correspondence and memorabilia sent out to club members, some contributed by correspondent Clive Kay and some from The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame's own archive.

Does anyone remember going to the Caroline Coffee Bar in Felixstowe, as mentioned in the letter? Also enclosed was this press release about the merger with Radio Atlanta. Click to see it in full:

Following the upgrade of the Caroline South ship and the fitting of the new fifty kilowatt transmitter in 1966, this letter was sent out to members. It was not strictly accurate. Despite what it said, the North ship had not had a new transmitter. Click to see the whole thing:

That letter was followed shortly afterwards by another one. It was time to pay another ten shillings (50p) to renew the subscription. Click to see it in full:

And this is the letter that accompanied the Caroline Club identity bracelet (not engraved with name and club membership number after all. Someone must have worked out how much that was going to cost!). Click on the fragment to see it all:
