MI AMIGO TRAGEDIES

Recorded well over 40 years in the life of Radio Caroline here's an interesting CD  taken from an original reel to reel  tape of all the bad bits Caroline went through since she began broadcasting on Easter Sunday 1964. Listen to what the station had to go through in her turbulent days in the North Sea ON and OFF the air. In the early days not long after she began broadcasting in 1964 a Dutch Naval Frigate took an interest into this mysterious vessel with her enormous mast sticking out from her hull. Hear about a fight on deck aboard the Mi Amigo followed by an explanation from Ronan O'Rahilly, owner of the station. Listen to a motor launch rescue and hear Radio Caroline telling listeners to urgently call the Harwich Coastgaurd. Also a May Day broadcast asking help from Radio North Sea International and Radio Veronica which were anchored a few miles away from each other. Then an anchor breakage occurs the ship starts to drift onto a sandbank Radio Caroline asks for help and contacts the Harwich Coastgaurd urgently wanting to know her position because the Mi Amigo has no radar, then another anchor breaks and the station has to go off the air because she is drifting into Territorial Waters, the coastgaurd relays several messages telling the Captain of the vessels position. TV and Radio Stations across the country capture the moment listen to their reports. Also a raid takes place, a mutiny occurs Radio Caroline goes off the air, National Radio covers the story. Then in March 1980 the real nail in the coffin, the Mi Amigo sinks. Hear the dramatic stories from the DJs on board just before the ship goes down also listen to the vast media coverage from TV and Radio Stations .The late Tommy Vance once said " Radio Caroline has freedom, its ahead of its time, totally contemparary, no Government restrictions, it has freedom and thats something very magical that you cannot package or sell ".  A remarkable CD packed with all the tragedies Radio Caroline has gone through over the years all on one CD. Its a real memory jerker.
