Radio Caroline Anniversary

Radio Caroline’s last pirate broadcast was ten years ago this Sunday. To mark the occasion, this week’s ‘Anorak Hour’ from Phantom FM will have a special guest in the studio, Steve Conway, who worked on the Ross through the mid 80’s, until he was one of 6 people rescued by helicopter when she ran aground on the notorious Goodwin Sands in November 1991.
Steve will be talking about the Dutch Raid and the grounding as well as general stories about life on the Ross.
Also scheduled for broadcast on the programme is an exclusive short documentary about last year’s Caroline RSL from Southport pier. The item features airchecks of the broadcast as well as interviews with the main presenters and has not been played on air before…not even on Caroline.
The Anorak Hour can be heard at 1pm on Sunday not only on 91.6FM and 102.9FM across Dublin, but across the world on the newly launched live webcast from Phantom and on demand here on Radiowaves.FM.
