Book Description
Radio Caroline was the world's most famous pirate radio station during its heyday in the 1960s and '70s, but did the thousands of people tuning in realise just what battles went on behind the scenes? Financed by respected city money men, this is a story of human endeavour and risk, international politics, business success and financial failures. A story of innovation, technical challenges, changing attitudes, unimaginable battles with nature, disasters, frustrations, challenging authority and the promotion of love and peace while, at times, harmony was far from evident behind the scenes. For one person to tell the full Radio Caroline story is impossible, but there are many who have been involved over the years whose memories and experiences bring this modern day adventure story of fighting overwhelming odds to life. Featuring many rare photographs and unpublished interviews with the 'pirates' who were there, Ray Clark, once a Radio Caroline disc jockey himself, tells the captivating story of the boat that rocked!

Behind the scenes at Radio Caroline

Behind the scenes at Radio Caroline PDF Author: Lyn Gilbert
Publisher: BookRix
ISBN: 3755446502
Category : Biography & Autobiography
Languages : en
Pages : 210

Book Description
Who would have thought that working behind the scenes at Radio Caroline would involve smuggling money from one country to another, proving to the police that a body wasn't buried in your garden, knowing that 'Bob the Mole' from the Home Office was listening in to all your phone conversations, that you'd be taking part in a controversial launch of a band or working with George Harrison as he set up Hand Made Films? A sane person might have run for the hills. But being naïve (and perhaps not entirely sane) these were just a few of the shenanigans that the author encountered as she embarked on years of working with Ronan O'Rahilly - the main founder of Radio Caroline. In the 1970s Radio Caroline listeners would, if they were lucky and everything was running smoothly, hear presenters playing great album tracks that couldn't be heard on any other station. Behind the scenes though, others were beavering away to ensure Caroline stayed on the air. Australian Lyn Gilbert, living in the UK is a teacher, but did a lot of side jobs in her youth, working at bars and restaurants and helping Ronan O'Rahilly producing movies and running his pirate radio station.

Pop Song Piracy

Pop Song Piracy PDF Author: Barry Kernfeld
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226431843
Category : Biography & Autobiography
Languages : en
Pages : 286

Book Description
The music industry’s ongoing battle against digital piracy is just the latest skirmish in a long conflict over who has the right to distribute music. Starting with music publishers’ efforts to stamp out bootleg compilations of lyric sheets in 1929, Barry Kernfeld’s Pop Song Piracy details nearly a century of disobedient music distribution from song sheets to MP3s. In the 1940s and ’50s, Kernfeld reveals, song sheets were succeeded by fake books, unofficial volumes of melodies and lyrics for popular songs that were a key tool for musicians. Music publishers attempted to wipe out fake books, but after their efforts proved unsuccessful they published their own. Pop Song Piracy shows that this pattern of disobedience, prohibition, and assimilation recurred in each conflict over unauthorized music distribution, from European pirate radio stations to bootlegged live shows. Beneath this pattern, Kernfeld argues, there exists a complex give and take between distribution methods that merely copy existing songs (such as counterfeit CDs) and ones that transform songs into new products (such as file sharing). Ultimately, he contends, it was the music industry’s persistent lagging behind in creating innovative products that led to the very piracy it sought to eliminate.

Founded in 1922, the British Broadcasting Corporation is probably the most well-known national radio corporation in the world, but the BBC is just part of the British radio picture.

All aspects of the 85 years of UK radio, from issues of regulation to the role played by commercial operators prior to World War II, are covered in this new book by SeOn Street. The A to Z of British Radio relates the history of this medium through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on the BBC and other companies, many of the specific stations, the more memorable programs and those who wrote for or appeared on them, and the administrative and technical aspects. This quick reference tool's structure and ease of navigation will have scholars, students, radio industry professionals, journalists, and critics turning to it again and again.
