Pirate Radio is the ‘spirit of fun radio’ thanks to Canadians..

Canadians can lay claim or take blame for much of the infamous success of Pirate Radio and what British Parliamentarians soon called “the destruction of all things sane and sound”.
The first two Pirate Radio ships were Radio Caroline One and Radio Caroline Two (some recall it as Caroline North and South). Each ship directed its signal to a different part of England, but each also spilled over into adjacent countries.
The fresh new sounds of rock ‘n’ roll that everyone wanted to hear were being delivered by energetic announcers keyed up and ready to rock. Who knew they were mostly Canadians?
