Freak Radio Santa Cruz Celebrates 15 Years Of Pirate Broadcasting
by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
Sunday Mar 28th, 2010 12:14 AM
Free Radio Santa Cruz celebrated 15 years of unlicensed, community supported radio on March 27th at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in downtown Santa Cruz. The night featured local musicians and brought together past and present station programmers, as well as other community members. In addition to the local musicians, Tom Lodge, a pirate radio legend and pioneer from England, spoke of the great days of Radio Caroline, which allowed for the British Invasion. Lodge recently penned a book called The Ship That Rocked The World: How Radio Caroline Defied the Establishment, Launched the British Invasion, and Made the Planet Safe for Rock and Roll.

Free Radio Santa Cruz can be picked up at 101.1 FM in most of Santa Cruz, and online at www.freakradio.org
