Radio Veronica tapes
Thursday, 9 December 2010
I just visited Dolf Hell and came home with a pile of cassette tapes. It are recordings of radio shows broadcasted by the pirate stations. I have no idea what the source of these recordings is, and neither what they are worth. But it seems as if they were recorded on the ships and that would make them a great find. Dolf said he has more tapes, but i first want to close listen to the pile that i have lying in front of me.
The tapes are from the dates that are on the label, the early seventies. I think that this project will cost me at least two tape decks, so before i start turning all this material in mp3’s i would like to know how interesting this stuff is. If anybody knows, please tell me.
Here is a part of one random tape, on which you can hear that this seems indeed recorded on the ship:
