Radio Caroline Gets Legal
Legendary pirate broadcaster Radio Caroline has apparently gone legit. Newsline reports that the station, which broadcast from a ship off the English coast from 1964 to 1991, is now licensed and operating on the medium-wave frequency of 648 kHz, a frequency formerly used by the BBC World Service. The station is also streaming its broadcasts over the internet.
Some programs still originate from the station's shipboard studios aboard the restored Ross Revenge, but the ship is now moored in the River Blackwater. Reception reports have come from as far away as Italy and Japan. For more info, visit <www.radiocaroline.co.uk>
