There was an item on it on BBC Breakfast this morning.
How about Radio Luxembourg? Was it the Horace Bachelor advert that spelled out Keynsham every time Wink Wink

It was Horace Bachelor..........claimed he could win the pools for you but didn't say how much you might win. I Thing he used large permutations. Might have had more success these days with access to a computer but no one has ever followed up with that idea as far as I know

Re: Radio Caroline

Radio Luxembourg....... 208 mtrs in the medium wave... or 1.441 kc/s ( old style)..
was also on 49 mtrs in the Short Wave band.... about 6.2 mc/s ( if I remember correctly !)...
There is a German language station on that frequency now...
I remember "Journey into Space " ... (about 6.45pm for 15 mins)
EDIT EDIT EDIT
at the moment... 20:00 RL is playing some strong Rock Music... and it fades just like it used to do... way back when !...

Re: Radio Caroline

Are you using the
Additional Options and Attachments
Browse
(more attachments)
If so
This is well known to be slower than a snail on cider Roll eyes
Workaround is
Duplicate the Tab
Upload the images as normal
Refresh the duplicated Tab & the image(s) should appear
Mavs advice here works
Quote from: Mav
I've got so used to the quirkiness of posting pictures that when I need to do so I just open in a new tab to post then if the picture seems to take a long time to load refresh the forum page and if my post is showing then just close the posting page.
Second nature now Wink

Re: Radio Caroline

Yeah... still uploading.. am on the second ( duplicate ) forum page.... If I recycle the original (uploading)  page... it loses all but one of the attachments
Just re-loaded the uploading page... lost one of the attachments... and waiting ............................................................
It used to be fairly quick... but can`t see why it takes so long on the upload speed I have...
