Description - Radio Caroline: The True Story of the Boat that Rocked by Ray Clark
Radio Caroline was the world's most famous pirate radio station during its heyday in the 1960 and '70s. But while thousands of listeners were tuning in, it wasn't all plain sailing behind the scenes. Though she was financed by respected city money men, Caroline faced many challenges: political opposition, financial worries, technical problems and, of course, the dangers and difficulties of life at sea. She defied authority, transformed attitudes and promoted musical innovation and love and peace, while, at times, harmony was far from evident on the boat itself. The station is remembered as an icon of the swinging sixties but still broadcasts today. Featuring many rare photographs and unpublished interviews with the 'pirates' who were there, this is a modern-day adventure story of human endeavour and risk. Ray Clark, once a Radio Caroline DJ himself, tells the captivating story of the boat that rocked! AUTHOR: Ray Clark is a radio presenter with more than thirty years' experience. He started his career on Radio Caroline in the 1980s and currently presents on BBC Essex. He is the author of The Great British Woodstock (THP, 2017). 32 b/w illustrations, 16 colour plates
