Review

"...Tom Lodge was a vital figure in Caroline's most vital times. As such, he deserves Knighthood... Sometimes the law is more than an ass. Pirates? 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
