Hi there,From what I gather, the pirate radio stations in the 60's would have been a mixed blessing for the mod culture in the 60's: On the one hand, they would have catered for mods basic demand to add a fair dash of colour to their lives, but on the other hand these stations were also blatantly commercial by nature; they would have drawn on elements of the scene and mixed these with bland popular music, thus, they would have played a significant role in the exploitation of mod's formerly secretive motivitation but at the same time they would also have introduced the masses to some fairly good music. No longer would one have to ransack dingy little underground stores in order to find new and rare tracks (which for me to this day is a key element), but one would simply tune in to the right programs at the right time. The Who have expressed this effect on the mod movement in general beautifully with their aptly named "Sell Out" album. However, apart from their "Radio London" Jingle, I can't really find any references to pirate radio in mod-related literature.Therefor, I would like to direct my question, first and foremost to the senior mods: How big a role did pirate stations actually play in the mod movement? Of all the stations at the time (the nationwide Radio England and Radio Britain, as well as the regional Radio London, Radio Tower, Radio City, Radio Channel, Radio 390, Radio Caroline, Radio Essex, Radio Scotland and Radio Caroline North), were there any ones more suited than others to cater for mods/stylists' tastes? Were there any programs/DJ's that were considered "a must"? Were these stations aimed at mods at all? What was the general (or your specific) mod-view on these stations?So many questions, I hope that somebody can shed some light on this, for me, blurry subject.
