Radio Caroline

London, 648 kHz AM
Rating: 4.6 Reviews: 84
Radio Caroline has very interesting history. It was launched in 1964 by Ronan O’Rahilly as an alternative to mainstream radio stations and a protest against the monopoly of record companies who controlled all popular radio stations. This was an offshore pirate radio as Ronan didn’t obtain any license. His first studio was based on a 702-ton passenger ferry and he broadcasted from international waters. Show more

    Fantastic station playing a diverse range of (mostly seventies to nineties) music but some new artists too. Virtually no advertising, no news, traffic or daft games. Interesting DJs, a link to the Radio Caroline and Radio Atlantis of the past via Manx Radio, why would I listen to anything else?

Information about the radio

O’Rahilly gave the name Caroline to his station and his ship after Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the U.S. President. There was a time when this radio station was extremely popular, but it always had semi-legal (and sometimes illegal) status. Radio Caroline changed the ships several times and was sponsored by different people at different periods. People say that at some point even George Harrison funded them.

Currently Radio Caroline broadcasts on 648kHz AM to the east of England and on DAB+ in Aldershot/Woking, Norwich, Portsmouth, Glasgow, Birmingham, Brighton and London. It plays album-oriented rock from the 1960s to the present.
