FAMOUS former pirate radio station, Radio Caroline, has invited presenters from a community radio station to get a taste of what it is like to be an offshore DJ.

Presenters from Caroline Community Radio 94.7FM, which serves the Maldon district, will be spending three days on board the historic radio ship Ross Revenge in October.

Radio Caroline station manager Peter Moore said: “Caroline Community Radio is an independent radio station which is supported by Radio Caroline with training and technical expertise.

“As part of our support we will be handing the studios on Ross Revenge over to the community presenters for the weekend and they will be shown the ropes by Radio Caroline DJs staying with them on board.”

There will be an opportunity for residents to visit Ross Revenge during the broadcast on October 9-10 and be shown around by Radio Caroline DJs.

The ship is moored on the River Blackwater and trips will be running on both days from Bradwell Marina.

Anyone interested can book places by emailing boattrips@radiocaroline.co.uk.

The broadcast will be on Caroline Community Radio 94.7 FM and on carolinecommunityradio.co.uk.
