Canch End Morning Radio (2020)

Audiovisual

5min15sec

Synthesised soundscape with voiceover; fragments of a recovered interview describing the UK's first pirate radio station.  

In the late 1940’s, Canch End Radio was broadcast from the now lost town of Seaton Snook. As far as we can tell, it was the first pirate radio station operating in the UK. Their morning radio show was broadcast at dawn on weekdays for several years. Sadly no recordings were made, but fragments of an interview with someone closely involved with starting the station (possibly Robson Booth) have been uncovered. This video will remain separate from the official seatonsnook.com archive until we have further verified our sources.
