Radio Mi Amigo Shows

Our Programme Director for 2017, Garry Lee, is busy putting together the programme and has a few words about this year:


The Stonehenge Disco is back!!! On the programme this year, not only will we be celebrating 50 years since the outlawing of offshore radio, but also 50 years since The Summer Of Love & 40 years since the rather momentus 1977 and the birth of Punk & New Wave! Lots of amazing music, clips & memories to come, both on the evening shows & the overnights. We are counting down the days!!!

Also coming soon on this year’s Mi Amigo RSL in July, we have a wonderful new team of overnight presenters. One of which is The Reverend Rabbit! The good Reverend will be serving up a diet of tasty album tracks for the wee small hours between 4-6am on the first five nights of the broadcast.

Returning to Radio Mi Amigo this July… It’s the housewives choice…. Bart Serlie – The Floating Dutchman!!!

More programme news to follow!

Getting Ready!

It’s been a busy few weeks on the LV18 as we prepare for Radio Mi Amigo next month and Pirate BBC Essex just two weeks later!

The studio still looks rather bare with just a hint of technology but it’s had a lick of paint and a tidy up. Elsewhere the ship has had similar treatment; lots of those ‘Winter jobs’ have now been completed!

We’ve been testing our new streaming service and it sounds great! Thanks to everyone who’s commented on our Facebook page. We are preparing a few programmes to go out exclusively online before the broadcast starts on 21st July, keep an ear open for that!

There’s plenty going on in readiness for Pirate BBC Essex too, Steve Scrutton, Ian Wyatt and engineer Matt visited us recently to make sure everything was ship-shape. Cheers guys!
