Recorded in 1980 at Piccadilly Radio in Manchester, this is the story of Big L, Wonderful Radio London. A 'Top Forty' offshore commercial radio station that operated from 16 December 1964 to 14 August 1967, from a ship anchored in the North Sea, three and a half miles off Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, England. The station, like the other offshore radio operators at the time, was dubbed a pirate radio station. Its offices were located in the West End of London at 17 Curzon Street just off Park Lane.
Radio London broadcast from the MV Galaxy, a former Second World War United States Navy minesweeper originally named USS Density.
