Footnote: Ocean 7 was put up for sale at £12,500 there were no takers. The transmitter and broadcasting equipment from 270 was placed in storage and in 1970 found their way to the Dutch offshore station Capital Radio. Proceeds from the disposal of the vessel and equipment raised £12,000, by the time the creditors were paid off there was no cash for the shareholders. Although Radio 270's life was short it had a significant impact on people in the North East  of England.  Ocean 7 the ship itself was later broken up in Blyth.
A unique CD charting a piece of radio history that will never be repeated.
