11/05/09 - Simon Barrett certainly was broadcasting from the Ross Revenge. 1983-1985. Famous mention of "William" by The Smiths "That was William with The Smiths it was really nothing". That was what we land-based pirate jocks thought, that is why we flipped it over and spun the B-side until it became the A-side. Good to see this list

Ross Brown/Freddie Beare - (M) 1967 (F) September 1967 - March 1968

I served a very short time on the Mi Amigo from August 13th 1967 I mostly provided the news service, and then moved to the Fredericia from until March 1968 where I read news as Ross Brown and did an evening Tamala Mowtown/Atlantic records oriented Rhythm & Blues show as 'Frantic' Freddie Beare. When the ship was taken off the air after the introduction of Maritime Offences Bill which made it illegal to help the pirate stations, pressure was brought on the Manx Government to get them to stop Caroline North from operating. The Max Governments eventual capitulation meant that most of the British based DJs left the North Ship and volunteers were called for to keep the ship running I stayed behind staying on the ship until after the Fredericia had been towed into Amsterdam - Ross Brown
