Here are a few offshore radio recordings from the Flare Radio archive. They are from original recordings made by the webmaster, and if you hear any of them them elsewhere, then they have certainly been downloaded from this site. Some files have had to be temporarily removed and it hoped to restore these soon.

The Caroline Revival Hour generated a lot of excitement in 1969. The problem was, reception was very poor in the UK and the broadcast was very late at night on 2nd March 1969. I lost count of the number of times Daffy Don Allen said "loud and clear".:

This rally in support of the Dutch pirates was well attended. In this recording you can hear some directions being given for our march to Downing Street and the Dutch Embassy. I remember marching to the sound of the excellent landbased pirate station Radio Kaleidoscope, blasting out of numerous portable radios. If anyone knows the exact date of the rally, please email me:
