CLASSIC 80'S LONDON PIRATE RADIO.TIM WESTWOOD - TREVOR "MADHATTER" NELSON.KISS FM 1986
Back in 86 if you wanted to hear any type of decent music on the radio you certainly wernt gonna hear it on Radio 1, or Capital. It was all about the Pirates. Kiss was set up in 1985 by Gordon mack and alongside LWR they were the 2 major players on the pirate scene. The rare groove scene was in full swing and its safe to say that Westwood and Trevor were defiantly doing there things, and holding down the warehouse parties and the clubs.
Boy its crazy to think that the station i dj on now which is a huge million pound business , used to be a pirate radio station which broadcasted in different locations every night out of peoples bedrooms and various other locations....and all for the love of music.
On this tape both dj's are killing it with the rare groove selection...I left the adds in too, which are pure jokes.
Check out the classic Kiss line photo above, and props to my man Patrick Forge pictured whose still on the station 21 years later, still doing his thing!!! (check him out every Sunday nigh/Monday morning 1-3am)
I'd love to hear a 2008 version of this.....Now that would be jokes..HOLLLLLLLLLLAAAA
