Inside Pirate Radio Documentary, now +30 years ago!
« on: October 10, 2021, 1841 UTC »
Well, this is certainly pirate history, and Youtube still has it up,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_oXEMu7Rzo What prompted me to this VID again? Running Radio Wolf International over my stations this Columbus Day Weekend. Hey... The Youtube copy is a better VID version than what I'd bought back in 1991 on VHS.
Since I did electrical training, for being an electrician, decades ago, I thought that I could always fall-back on that. Besides, what other field can you use trade terms like nipples, hickeys, and making male / female connections, without getting into trouble at work?
