Live from a boat on the Thames
Shaun Keaveny celebrates the alternative side of 1960s broadcasting - pirate radio ships and offshore stations - by presenting a live show from a boat on the Thames.
The BBC's year long season My Generations reaches the 1960s this month. There are special programmes across TV and radio and 6 Music will join in, playing all things 60s. Shaun is live from the Tattershall Castle, a boat on the River Thames as he explores the alternative side of 60s broadcasting, the pirate radio ships and off shore broadcasting. Shaun is joined legendary Radio Caroline presenters Tom Edwards and The Emperor Rosko whilst Matt Everitt talks to The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards about the role off shore radio played in helping the music of the 60's to grow and reach youth audiences. Plus, author and former Radio Caroline presenter Ray Clark leads us through the history of off shore radio in the UK.
