Does anyone remember Radio Geronimo Link
My all time favorite pirate station, broadcast from Radio Monaco's facility.
Their stated aim was to exist without the advertising & showbizzyness of the other stations they tried to fund it by encouraging listners to buy their music direct from them, needless to say they failed.
Their playlist was eclectic the D.J.s wern't celebs, they were there just to play the records & tell you what they were playing. Sometimes you would listen to 20 mins of music before the D.J. came on to tell you what you had listened to & then what was coming on next.
Typical playlist Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Fairport Convention, Doors, Bartok, Joni Mitchell, Canned Heat, Ravi Shankar ........
