Home Ground Basement Floor 1 Floor 2



Despite the huge popularity of the offshore radio stations, the formation of supporters’ groups often came about quite late in the day - generally when the future of the stations was directly threatened by planned government legislation.

Some groups took the approach of trying to persuade governments to discontinue legislation to outlaw the offshore stations, while others also actively campaigned for the introduction of licensed commercial radio. During the 1970s and 1980s in particular some groups focused on providing news and information about offshore stations while also providing clandestine support to help the stations continue operating.

In this Gallery we have information about the major supporters’ groups, but would like to also add information about the other smaller groups. After the demise of the offshore stations - particularly in Britain in the late 1960s and later - many small, often quite local groups were established to keep the memory of offshore radio alive and to campaign for the introduction of legal commercial radio.

If you were involved in any way in one or more of these groups and have some information about activities, publications, campaigns, events etc please contact us at resources@offshoreradiomuseum.co.uk
