RADIO CAROLINE'S 50TH BIRTHDAY
* Session: 2014-15
* Date tabled: 12.06.2014
* Primary sponsor: Crouch, Tracey
* Sponsors:
Jackson, Glenda
Dobbin, Jim

That this House congratulates Radio Caroline on its 50th birthday this year; calls on Ofcom to exhaust all avenues in making the provisions available to celebrate its birthday by broadcasting on a medium wave frequency which appears unwanted by both the BBC and commercial operators as a broadcast platform; expresses its disappointment that, having pioneered commercial radio in the UK and for the past decade being a fully licensed broadcaster, Radio Caroline, a cornerstone of British radio history, until now has been denied by Ofcom the opportunity to secure a medium wave frequency from which to broadcast; and regrets that as a result its devoted listeners are confined to listening to Radio Caroline via the internet and unable to enjoy its musical offerings in transit.

I picked up a test transmission from Radio Caroline this morning and was pleasantly surprised to be able to receive it this far north. Very Happy
