Monday 19 September is International Talk Like A Pirate Day – and someone who knows all about that is Classic FM presenter Nick Bailey who began his career with the original pirate radio station, Radio Caroline.
Radio Caroline was founded in 1964 by Ronan O'Rahilly to circumvent record companies' control of popular music broadcasting in the UK and the BBC's radio broadcasting monopoly. Unlicensed by any government for most of its early life, it was a pirate radio station which only formally became illegal in 1967.
