Bristol Pirates I think fate must've brought me here 'cause I fell over this tape on Discogs by accident while looking for something else entirely. It features some of the recordings that I made myself back in the late 80s and early 90s, or recordings that I encouraged others to share with me and have contributed to the internet over the past 16 years, including the ad for Smithy's Takeaway from Black FM. It even features my own voice, but I'm not telling which clip it is :) Check for more. Favorite track: Side A.

underworld9202 This is pure fire! Literally the soundtrack to my coming of age, I can trace my musical taste and aesthetic back to broadcasts like these. Bristol Pirates perfectly captures the roughness and spirit of an incredibly fertile era in radio. Favorite track: Side A.
