A small selection of free radio material from the time - I even had a letter published in SIRA magazine (just after one from Roger Day !).

 a sample of the 1970's loving awareness sound...

Purely by coincidence, my brother & I had arranged to drive over to Holland to see a school friend at the end of August 1974. On 31st August we drove to Scheveningen & managed to get on the Trip Tender to sail around the Mebo 2 & the Norderney on their last day. Obviously the Mi Amigo was far out of sight by now. I remember sitting in our Wolseley 1300 at Scheveningen harbour eating chips covered in mayonnaise & listening to 538m & the abrupt end of Veronica - with Capital Radio from London just audible underneath.

The following day we drove to Vlissingen harbour to see the Janeine (Radio Atlantis) tied up (we were too late to see her sail in). A depressing sight, but some consolation was the chance to have a quick chat with Dave Rogers. Further consolation was the fact that Radio Caroline continued, & I remained a constant listener whenever I could until the sinking in March 1980. I particularly enjoyed the Caroline daytime eras with Mark Lawrence, James Ross & Tony Allen, & the spirit of loving awareness.
