Radio Caroline to celebrate its 50th anniversary

Radio Caroline celebrates its 50th anniversary this month.

It is exactly 50 years since a team of DJs boarded a boat moored off the Felixstowe coast and changed the radio industry forever.

Radio Caroline began broadcasting in 1964 and kept going despite government attempts to shut it and other pirate stations down.

Its second ship, the Ross Revenge, is now being lovingly restored in Essex.
