RADIO ADVENTURES OF THE MV COMMUNICATOR
The return of Radio Caroline in 1983, was followed almost a year later by another offshore radio station that made a huge impact on European broadcasting. Laser 558 from the MV Communicator was soon heard playing from cars, cafes, shops and just about everywhere in London, Southern England and across Europe. Author Paul Rusling was heavily involved with the MV Communicator, and this book with much inside information recounts the story from the fitting out of the radio ship to its arrival off the British coast. the failure of their intended balloon aerial system and a battle with the British authorities, who were far from happy with Lasers popularity. This book is not just the story of Laser, but the story of Communicator, that eventually housed eleven different radio stations, and a tale of storms, fraudsters, crooks, armed raids, and much more. The book can be personally signed with a dedication from the author, just ask when ordering.

POP WENT THE PIRATES – UPDATED EDITION
To produce the definitive history of pirate radio and pirate radio ships is a daunting task. This edition of Pop Went the Pirates, updated in 2009, sets out to achieve this with a comprehensive account from the earliest pirate radio stations in the 1930s up to the present day and takes in reunions and celebrations that have taken place since in England, Holland and the United States of America, since the Government outlawed the offshore radio stations in 1967. This outstanding hardback is the product of 45 years painstaking research by the author, Keith Skues. The informative text is fully illustrated with nearly 300 black and white photographs of the pirate ships, DJs, and performing artists - many of which have never previously been published. Delve into this tour de force to find out all about the ships and forts which played such important roles in changing pop music and radio broadcasting.
