Radio Caroline's 40th birthday DJ reunion

Traditionally Easter has always been celebrated as Caroline's “official” birthday but the station's first programme was on 28th March 1964. Exactly forty years later a number of Caroline DJs, from all eras of the station's existence, gathered to celebrate the occasion. Back in the sixties the Red Lion pub in London's Waverton Street, conveniently close to Chesterfield Gardens (the home of Caroline House) and Curzon Street (Radio London at number 17, Swinging Radio England at number 32), was the pirate DJs' hostelry of choice. It was the obvious venue for the reunion. The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame was delighted to be able to help organiser Roger Day track down some of his former colleagues and honoured to be invited to the event. Our grateful thanks to Roger. These photos were taken in and outside the pub that afternoon. Happy birthday Radio Caroline.
