Joined by his friends and colleagues 'Admiral' Robbie Dale (who along with Johnnie remained on board after midnight on the 14th August when the Marine Offences Bill passed into law, broadcasting illegally to an estimated European audience of 22 million), Tom Edwards (who left Caroline on the 14th), Pete Brady, Roger Twiggy Day, Keith Cardboard Shoes Skues, Emperor Rosko, Paul Burnett and Tony Blackburn, who worked on both Caroline and London, Johnnie will play some of 1967's key tracks on the medium wave and pay tribute to Kenny Everett and Ed Stewart.
