The Radio Caroline North 40th Anniversary Convention.

Isle of Man, 19th - 21st September 2008

After the morning at the exhibition, it was back on the coach for the drive back to Douglas and a lecture theatre at the Manx Museum for an afternoon of nostalgia.
Journalist Terry Cringle remembered reporting on the arrival of the Fredericia in July 1964 and of breaking the sad news that the ship was being towed away in March 1968; Dr Brian Stowell, a social historian, explained the significance of Radio Caroline to the island and the islanders; and we heard from all the former station personnel in attendance.

As well as the fascinating discussions, the delegates were also shown an extended version of the video running at the House of Manannan exhibition. It included some recently discovered home movie footage of the on-board wedding of DJ Mick Luvzit to Ray's sister, Janet Terrett. It was only later that evening that one of the delegates, John Thomas, realised that the wedding had taken place on 20th September 1966 and we had been watching the footage on 20th September 2008 - precisely 42 years later, to the day.
The session ended at five o'clock and that marked the close of formal proceedings for Saturday, although many gathered later for a drink or two. The next day it was another early start for the coach trip to Ramsey.
