August 2015 Offshore memories

That time of year is upon us again and the Big L jocks will be bringing back some of the sounds of the offshore pirate days when ships broadcast the latest groovy tunes to eager ears on land.

Just a few of the special shows.

Ian Cook gets the party underway at 7pm on Thursday 13th August and his Five from Ten Chart will feature 1967.

Suzy, Steve and Danny will play some of those dusty, waterlogged old jingles and audio clips from the ships from 8am until 2pm on August 14th. Then to carry on the memories, Kev Reed sits in for Stan Aston between 2 and 4pm live from our Frinton studio and Roger Davis sits in for Nick Barnes between 4 and 6pm, also from our Frinton studio.

Danny Van Dam will host a special Offshore Chart Show at 6pm on Saturday 15th August counting down the Summer of Love Chart from 1967 and Phil Troll will host a Watery Wireless special at 8pm including quite a few of the instrumental themes from the pirates along with some of the original Radio London jingles.

As always, please do get in touch with us during the day and share your memories as well as requesting your favourite songs of the era. We'll be glad to hear from you!
