“Why we did it? Because our need to communicate over the radio has let us passed thirty years of problems with the law? It is not just the fact of being able to transmit a record of the Rolling Stone without authorization, it is a matter of freedom. Before being turned off by the Broadcasting Act, Radio Caroline was the only English radio station that had no direct control by the institutions. The official reasons of the closure of our station were not our potential interference to other radio or violations of our laws on territorial waters but just the fact that everything that can not be controlled by the government must be eliminated “
Peter Moore, manager of Radio Caroline (a british pirate radio broadcasting from a ship in international waters since 1964, closed down by the Labour government in 1967)
