MARK ROMAN TALKS FRANKLY ABOUT PIRATE RADIO LONDON

Heres a nice CD about Mark Roman ex DJ from Radio London who moved to Australia a few months after the station closed down on August 14th 1967 owing to the Marine Offences Bill. I obtained this rare recording through a friend of mine in Australia.  Recorded in Australia at the end of 1967 he talks frankly about his days on the MV Galaxy from which Radio London broadcast 3 and a half miles off the coast of Clacton in Essex. Remember the Roman Empire jingle? This interview is mixed with some of the old Radio London jingles, he claims Radio London was better than Caroline. Remember Franky the fly incident? Mark also talks about the final days on the station before the Marine Offences Bill became law. The final hour of the station was recorded on land beforehand. He chats about the final few minutes of Radio Londons life and what happened after the station closed forever on 14th August 1967 at 3pm. He then joins Radio 1 for a very short time and discusses his reasons for leaving. He claims Radio 1 was a poor imitation of the offshore stations. Mark then goes on about his life in Australia. Also included on this CD is the edited version of Radio Londons final hour, containing goodbyes from the pop stars of the time and most of the DJs on board. Do you rememer the adverts ? well  theres a few of those on this CD. At the very end of the recording an interesting speech from Mr Phillip Birch, the Managing Director of Radio London. Followed by a 5 minute recording of the late legend himself Kenny Everett remembering the offshore radio days. All in all a brilliant CD and one for the collector.
