Pirate radio

Post by bentley » Wed May 13, 2009 8:33 pm

Always Always makes me smile

having been involved in running one in the 90`s
and even from a young age listening and recording them

moving a few boxes about tonight
out of 1500 tapes pulled 2 and gave them a listen

to my delight found swiftly fiaz and rythmaster on
dreem fm having jokes , proper funny sunday night bizniss

don fm my personal favourite , dont know the dj but
"hot like butter sweet like sugar be don or be gone "
"ten fifty severn"

rather have a pirate radio collection
than a record collection

much more fun !

Aye - Internet Radio is all good - often with better tune selection and better quality, but it's just not the same vibe! - Still love the fact you can get in the car on the weekend and flick around and find some hardcore somewhere on the dial usually - :D Relentless :D

Pirate radio is crazy !

I only played on one three times but i really enjoyed myself !

Getting on a reefa , having a can , somebody getting the munch in .... lav it !

I went to do some scratching the once and must of knocked a switch & turn it all off .... thought we were getting raided ! hahaha

Got all my tunes together at light speed & was ready to bolt and then realised what had happened , got my tunes out & carried on ! lol

Always been a fan of the pirates & in my time have had MANY tapes from the local's !

There was one that was really really infamous around here called 'mix fm' , it used to play club classics & speed garage (think 'sagat - luvstuff' & 'ruff driverz - deeper love') , that was THE station between 98 & 00 , i had LOTS of tapes from that station , saturdays 5-7 & 7-9 i was ALWAYS locked with my maxell 90's ready ! hahaha

Great times !

The pirates around here now are dreadful so i tend to give them a miss BUT i'll always have a soft spot for them !

Wouldnt mind having a bash at internet radio & to be honest i think i'd prefer it due to less hassle ... but then again thats part of the buzz of playing on a pirate !

If it wasn't for pirate radio I would never have gotten into hardcore.
There was only one station up here as far as I know and without it there would have only been cheesey house and bouncy techno to listen to.
