On this day in 1983, “pirate radio” station Radio Caroline made its comeback on board the ship Ross Revenge in the North Sea’s international waters after it was originally shut down in 1968. Six years to the day later, it would be shut down again.
Radio Caroline was used to broadcast from international waters, using five different ships from 1964 to 1990, and via satellite from 1998 to 2013. Radio Caroline is currently broadcasting 24 hours a day via the Internet. The music played is from the 1960s to contemporary.
