    A nice clash between the commentary, the officials, neatly coiffed guys from the press and these unruly long-haired strangely-clothed stars of pop and rock....

    The "s" in Keef's last name was pretty much M.I.A. until the late 70s.

    The BBC had a monopoly on radio broadcasting for decades.
    Due to Musicians Union strict "Needle Time" allowance there was little time left for Pop, which was seen a passing fad.
    The only way to hear anything "Pop" was Radio Luxembourg at night, which faded in & out depending on weather conditions.
    Desperate times for a music mad teenager

    Radio Caroline was begun by Irish musician manager and businessman Ronan O'Rahilly. O'Rahilly failed to obtain airplay on Radio Luxembourg for Georgie Fame's records because it was committed to sponsored programmes promoting major record labels; EMI, Decca, Pye and Philips.

    Encouraged by Scandinavian and Dutch pirates, in February 1964 O'Rahilly obtained the 702-ton former Danish passenger ferry, Fredericia, which was converted into a radio ship at the Irish port of Greenore, owned by O'Rahilly's father. At the same time, Allan Crawford's Project Atlanta was equipping the MV Mi Amigo at Greenore, where the two competed to be the first on air.

    Caroline started up in March 64. Our radio stayed tuned in for 4 solid years until it was outlawed by The Marine Offences Act 1967 and went off air March 68.

    The Caroline DJ with The Beatles was Simon Dee.
    He became massively well known & even had his own "Swinging 60s" TV show, Dee Time.

    Mant if the colour performances come from the same feature film which Pathé released circa 1964. The film ended with a live Beatles performance, also in colour. At the time UK TV was in black and white, with colour not appearing officially until mid 1967, and it only appeared on the main channels in December 1969.

    I’ll attempt to post more details on the film tomorrow - stuck on my mobile phone until then.

    Thanks so much for this! I'm putting most of these into my online History of Rock & Roll class, where they will most likely be sadly ignored by the kids (as I haven't assigned a point value for watching them). But let's hope I'm wrong...

    Bit of trivia - the building site in this film became The Barbican Centre :)
