That pic of Rosko brought back memories of his compering the 1967 Stax/Volt tour. I was a 19-year-old East End Mod at the time, and with Billy Walker’s ‘Upper Cut’ being so close to my home and 'in' with the Ilford Palais' bouncers, I got to see all the best British acts of the time (Gino Washington, Spencer Davis, Eric Burdon…).

But every true Mod was really into ska and soul, and to this day the performances in Forest Gate of Sam & Dave and, of course, Otis Redding, remain a privileged memory.

Rosko certainly had his work cut out keeping the fans under control until Otis came on stage.

Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy Nautical 2018!

I started off with a one-transistor radio (basically a crystal set) that I made myself and I listened to Radio Caroline in the evenings when I should have been going to sleep! Jonny Walker was great but I can't remember the DJ who came on at midnight. I do remember that they usually played an LP in full from midnight onwards, including artists such as the Moody Blues and Pink Floyd.
I built a few more of those one-transistor radios and sold them to friends at school. I used to get second-hand parts from a repair shop in Duke Street, Norwich – the chap was known as 'Old Beardie', I never know his real name.
A year or so later I got an 8 transistor radio for Christmas and I could get all the stations I could ever want (or so I thought).
These days I listen to Radio Caroline Flashback online.
