And on Sunday 5th August, the day after the event, some hardy souls were still flying the flag.

All the DJs say..........

A few of the kind comments we have received from people who attended the Celebration of Offshore Radio:
Keith Skues: “In all my years in radio never have I seen so many people from our business under one roof at one time. I just wish I had been allowed another 24 hours to get round to speak with everyone. I was flattered to have been a small part of the celebrations and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to other former offshore boys telling their stories. The memories of Saturday will live with me for a very long time.”
David Allan: “A wonderful event - nostalgic, moving at times and enjoyable.”
Candy Calvert: “I very much enjoyed Saturday and was so impressed with the efforts you and others made to put this altogether. Also the interest still in offshore radio is astounding. I have been completely out of touch with it and somehow I feel it was good to hear and see people from 40 years ago.”
Robbie Dale: “It was a pleasure to be with you and participate. Your hard work was rewarded with a fine, well attended gathering.”
Martin Kayne: “This is just a note to express my sincere thanks and total appreciation for all the work that achieved such a wonderful attendance for what has to be said was a masterful combination of live and audio video presentation. Apart from meeting old friends and colleagues, it was indeed a time warp of a trip back to 1967. I was totally knocked-out by the very obvious success of this event and would be happy for you to pass on by congratulations to everyone concerned.”
Alan Turner: “Absolutely wonderful to see so many of the old faces again after all these years. It would seem that I was the only one of the original Caroline broadcasting crew there. A great pity that Tom Lodge, Jerry Leighton, Simon Dee and Doug Kerr weren't there but, as they say, that's life.”
