I may have to watch this movie

I’ve been seeing previews for Pirate Radio. I remember listening to pirate radio when I was a young boy in England. I was attending Eastcote Elementary, a school for American service dependents, and the school used chartered tour buses to get us to and from the school. The usual driver on my route, a slightly-built young man with an improbably deep voice, used to tune in one of the pirate radio stations (Radio Caroline, I presume, but I really don’t remember) because the BBC was, at the time, too staid to play rock and roll.

It was an exciting time in music, and much of my musical taste was set at the time.
