BRISTOL PIRATE RADIO RECORDINGS

This blog is intended for me to post my pirate radio recordings. Most of the recordings are from Bristol, most will be pirate but there will be some legal stations and stations from other cities or national stations.

IF YOU OR YOUR FRIENDS HAVE ANY TAPE RECORDINGS OF PIRATE RADIO FROM BRISTOL, PLEASE SUBMIT THEM TO THIS BLOG BY RECORDING THEM TO MP3 (CLICK HERE FOR A HELP GUIDE) AND UPLOADING THEM TO http://www.sharebee.com, or a similar site such as Megaupload, Mediafire, ZShare, but not Rapidshare as it's getting a bit hard to use. SEND THE URL IT GIVES YOU TO ME VIA A COMMENT ON MY LATEST POST or BY EMAIL AT bristolpirates at gmail.com (you'll have to correct that with the proper @ symbol, I started getting spam on the address). WE COULD ALSO ARRANGE A PICK-UP OF YOUR TAPES IF YOU LIVE IN BRISTOL AND CAN'T CONVERT TAPES TO MP3. THANKS IN ADVANCE, YOU WILL BE CREDITED.

KWBB, BBC, Isherman, appeal for information.

KWBB - Knowle West Bad Boys - I'm told that Tricky and 3D ran this station from Knowle West, and it was smashed up by a crew from Bedminster. From there it was set up in Barton Hill and John Nation was possibly involved. Any information appreciated, especially recorded evidence of the station.

BBC - Bedminster Badboys Company - These were apparently the guys that smashed up the KWBB studio. They were also behind the Twisted free parties. The station was on air at the same time as those parties, so around 1992, and was the way to find out about them. Once again, any more information appreciated, especially recordings.

Isherman (spelling?) - I've been told this pirate is / was on air in Easton, probably on low power, about 1 to 4 watts I guess. I've seen the guy that told me about it a couple of times and his story hasn't changed, so it's possible it really does exist.

Weston Sound - This was in W-S-M and was run as a holiday station from a caravan site, any more info and recordings would be welcomed.

When you've been hunting down information for things and a few times you find out that you've been spun a little lie, you tend to get a bit more cynical about what you believe, so apologies if I seem like I don't believe you when you tell me information ;) I just have to take things with a pinch of salt.

TAPES - Still looking for tapes here, especially of the earlier pirates such as BAD, FTP, Emergency, RAW 104.9, SYT, Radio 103.5, etc...
