This rock and roll history documentary highlights Swinging Radio England, one of the original pirate radio stations in the UK in 1966. The sounds of the first ever 24 hour rock and roll station usher in the Americanization of pop music in Great Britain, while flaunting equally brilliant British bands from across the pond, to forever change the sound and format of radio and rock and roll, as we know it today.
Among the featured interviewees are original DJs Roger Day, Larry Dean, Dave Gilbee, Phil Martin, Ron O'Quinn, Rick Randall, John Ross-Barnard and Johnnie Walker.
This DVD brings to you the raucous musical climate of the 60's, a pirates treasure chest of hits and the history of this great rebellion in a way that will inform and entertain even the most knowledgeable of music historians.
