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.

Shockwave Radio 105.5FM Yeovil - 1990s

In the 90s, Yeovil had it's own pirate radio station known as Shockwave Radio 105.5FM. So far, I've only uncovered this one recording, and it's not representative of the stations entire output, but it's well worth a listen.

This is Chaos and Julia Set, who had the only Jungle show on the station. They were Dom Fripp and Mark Pritchard who had already had success with a number of releases on Recoil Records, most famously 'Atmosphere', and Mark had chart success with a rave version of the Roobarb and Custard theme. Mark went on to form Global Communication with Tom Middleton and Dom went on to manage Good Looking Records for LTJ Bukem.
