RADIO CAROLINE

Long Melford FC President Richard Kemp writes about the link between the club and Radio Caroline...

Having grown up in the era of pirate radio stations, instead of John Humphreys (now retired) on the radio from 6am, I have switched to the lighter menu of Radio Caroline. Much of the content is lightweight I know, but who in this current situation wants a permanent diet of doom and gloom?

At 7am to 9am a chap called John Paul (probably Fred Bloggs in reality) is on broadcasting from Los Angeles. This morning he told of the story of when walking his dog in the woods nearby to LA, from a distance he saw  a “ sheet like ghost”. As he got closer he realised what was going on, a chap sitting in a barber's chair, with usual sheet round him, a barber busy with clippers and a person waiting to be next for a haircut. Could it catch on here?   

The connection with Radio Caroline for me and LMFC is that the Annual Gala at LMFC in 1964 as the Hon Sec of the Gala, I booked in a special guest from Radio Caroline, DJ Jon Sydney (yes you have guessed he was Australian) to open the gala.

He was met at Sudbury Railway Station by “Taff” Bulmer the only one with a car, who dined with him at Long Melford Crown, and after the event was returned to Sudbury Railway Station. to get him back to Caroline. The usual profit for the Gala was circa 1000 pounds for LMFC.   RK
