Another chapter in the Palladium Boots Exploration Series

After strapping on their boots and exploring the lost corners of Berlin, Palladium are back with another chapter in their Exploration series, this time investigating the robust world of pirate radio in London. Pirate Radios are a phenomenon in the UK, something the Brits have over America in spades (god how I loathe America’s vapid, brain numbing radio airwaves).  Born in the 60’s from rusting anti-aircraft towers in the mouth of the Thames — or like the Maunsell Sea Forts at Red Sands above (home in the 1960s to the pirates of Radio 390, built to house British Soldiers stationed here during wartime) — today’s broadcasts are hidden in plain sight, transmitting from secret tower block studios via homemade rooftop antennas. Just don’t confuse real Pirate Radio with that shit ass movie, real Pirate Radio won’t have anything to do with Richard Curtis…
