The rest of the eighties DJs were rounded up and made their way to the stage.

The eighties pirates
Sitting left to right: Nick Bolland, Tony Kirk, Carl Kingston, Paul McKenna, Carol Maszka (who worked on board the mv Ross Revenge when the ship was being prepared for Radio Caroline in Spain), Mike Barrington, Peter Philips, Paul Rusling - but no seat for John Dwyer.
The eighties pirates
More chairs were found. John now had a seat, far right, but there was still no sign of the scheduled session host, Paul May, who was busy elsewhere. Peter Philips took charge.

After lunch Susan Moore, daughter of Reg and Dorothy Calvert, gave a presentation about her parent's station Radio City, and Reg's tragic death.
