RADIO CAROLINE CHRISTMAS 1974 INCLUDING THE RAID

Here's a recording of Radio Caroline broadcasting from the MV Mi Amigo anchored 6 miles off the Dutch coast. The station ceased its test transmissions as it was Christmas Day 1974. Andy Archer opens the programmes wishing everyone a Happy Christmas followed by a Caroline jingle, they even send their greetings to Radio North Sea International and Radio Veronica!!! Peter Chicago sends his best wishes to all his family and during the programme they manage to down 2 bottles of champagne!!! This is followed by the Graham Kaye Show. Andy Archer chats to people on board the MV Fortuna which drew alongside, on board were members of the Dutch Free Radio Campaign and they all have a chat which is broadcast live. This is then followed by a short recording of Leon Russell on Radio Mi Amigo followed by Tony Allan on Radio Caroline. Listen to a Radio Caroline shut down at 2am in the morning!!! Hear what happened when the station started drifting towards British Territorial Waters. Then tragedy!!!  A Dutch Naval Destroyer the D814 drew  near the Mi Amigo with a small launch which boarded the station and a fight begins on deck, Radio Caroline sends urgent messages out to the English Coastguard because they realise the Mi Amigo had broken her anchor chain. DJs ask listeners to phone their head office in The Hague, but the station drifts towards a sandbank, hear the dramatic incident taking place live on air!!! Then the Dutch Customs Officials board the station hear the dramatic conversation which eventually ended with Radio Caroline having to close down, Radio Caroline was silenced once again. This recording is then followed with a rare recording of Graham Gills Theme Tune, Way Back Home. More test transmissions follow in Dutch and English. Commercials on this CD are K-TEL remember them and The Caroline Club?  Listen to the beginning of Radio Seagul with Leon Russell, followed by another visit this time from the MV Morgan Star which drew alongside the Mi Amigo. The famous Toad Story is on here too. Mixed with a few Caroline jingles for good measure this CD is definitely a collectors item, with some rare recordings From the good ship Mi Amigo .  The late Tommy Vance once said  " Radio Caroline has freedom, its totally contemparary, no Government restrictions, it has freedom and thats something very magical that you cannot package or sell ".
