RNI UNDER ATTACK 29TH AUGUST 1970

Here's a CD recording events which took place on 29th August 1970 when RNI, (broadcasting from the Mebo 2 anchored in International Waters) received some un-welcomed guests that tried to tow the vessel away. One Saturday afternoon RNI was transmitting as usual when at 1.40 pm a tug  "The Husky " drew alongside the Mebo 2 with a certain Mr Munders who had previous connections with RNI, the Captain let only him on board. Hear RNI asking people to phone RNI's Head Office in Zurich while the station awaited instructions. Staff began locking up hatches on the Mebo 2, listen to this dramatic transmission take place its all jaw dropping stuff!!!! The studio was locked from inside and most of the DJs congregated there. The tug was accompanied by a launch. People on the tug then started to cut the Mebo 2s anchor chain!!! Some of the transmitters had to shut down owing to the spray around the two vessels but luckily the Medium Wave was left on, hence this recording. The tug then tried to start spraying RNI's antenna with water but were advised not to as a lethal shock would arc their way back to them. A launch was seen in the distance with Larry Tremain  Managing Director of RNI on board. The tug and launch then disappeared into the fog. Larry Tremain then climbs on board the Mebo 2 and makes a speech regarding the events of the afternoon, Carl Mitchell thanks the MV Nordeney home of Radio Veronica which kept in touch with RNI and asked if they wanted any help. Hear this historical broadcast, imagine a raid on a Radio Ship!!! DJs on board at the time were Andy Archer, Carl Mitchell, Michael Lindsey, Spangles Maldoon, and Alan West. A remarkable recording and yet another for the avid collector.
