Personal Photo Album of Radio Caroline -- Index Page
Life aboard the ship "MV Mi Amigo" 1967.
All the attached photographs were taken with my camera, and the prints placed in a photo album for over 40 years. Recently we have scanned these photographs, and I now wish to share these photographs with anyone interested to take a look. I am sure that I took many more photos but so far have not come across them.
Pictures have been cataloged and grouped into areas of interest. I worked as a radio engineer aboard both ships, Caroline North, and Caroline South. However the majority of pictures were take aboard Caroline South, moored three miles off shore in international waters. To reach Radio Caroline it was necessary to clear customs and immigration at Felixstow docks, where a tender such as the Offshore 1 or 2 would ferry us to the ship. On a clear day, Frinton-on-Sea coastal features could be seen from the ship.
Radio Caroline had two studios called main and recording. The main had a single play and mixer position. The recording studio was less sound proofed, but had two operating positions, which doubled as a news room, but mostly used for making up advertisements and jingles. Both studios where rather small so photographs tend to be close up. The recording studio, depending which angle the photograph was take, is either named the recording, or news studio, both names being interchangeable.
