Timewarp Radio

- this posting has a 'best before' time - 3pm 14th August. That's when 'Pirate BBC Essex' stops transmission (on Medium Wave!). They've kitted out the LV18 Lightship with turntables, decks, studio, and transmitters - and a load of the old pirate DJs (Dave Cash, Johnnie Walker, and many more) - and their playlist is strictly 64-67, with original jingles from Caroline and Big L. It shouldn't work, it ought to sound fusty, but it's surprisingly fresh and unforced.

Oh - and this time round they've got the benefit of internet connections to the audience!

Catch it while you can online via
www.bbc.co.uk/essex/local_radio/pirate_bbc_essex/ where there's a 'listen live' link in the main body (not the BBC Essex link - you don't want to go there).
