Radio Caroline - 1976

<img src="http://www.frisser.nl/spotify/caroline1976.jpg" border="0">

Radio Caroline is an English radio station founded in 1964 by Ronan O'Rahilly, to circumvent the tight hold the record companies had on the broadcast of popular music in the UK. It originally commenced transmissions as an offshore radio station broadcasting from a ship anchored in international waters off the coast of South East England. Originally unlicensed by any government, for the majority of its early life, it was labelled as a pirate radio station.

This is a run-down of 'playlists' from an assortment of late 70s Caroline air checks (1976-1980). Some would say that this was the most influential period in Caroline's history in terms of shaping the music people tuned in to. In many ways the programming was unique in that it included not only rock, in all its styles, but soul as well.

This is the first playlist (year 1976) of a series of 5 playlists.

<i>Note: some songs from the original playlists are not available on Spotify (Led Zepplin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd etc.) - I will try to update the playlists if the songs are becoming available.</i>
