Did you ever wonder why so much fantastic music started coming out of Britain in the 60s? Pirates did it. That's right, Pirates. The story of how they did it seems unbelievable, but it really happened. This book tells of Radio Caroline, and how a band of pirates changed the world of music forever.

They were angels." - Pete Townshend "Radio Caroline gave us our start - my eternal thanks." - Spencer Davis "Radio Caroline was more adventurous than most stations around in its day. It championed bands like the Kinks, who owe much of their early success to Radio Caroline and Tom Lodge." - Ray Davies "Pirate Radio, and in particular Radio Caroline, was a really exciting part of all our lives in those days, and summed up the spirit of the times culturally and musically." - Paul McCartney "...I won't give too much away but the Beatles interview and the mutiny against the Captain were highlights for me." - 'Given to Distracting Others - Blog, May 2011
