This is the expansion page from the main topic called Pirate Radio. It was created due to space limitations on the original page. MPLX/MH 21:48, 30 Sep 2004 (UTC)

why is the movie pump up the volume listed as a reference? Zmbe 07:01, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

No idea. I moved it to the 'see also' section. It could get removed altogether, I guess. Matt Deres 03:56, 26 March 2006 (UTC)


The page says that pirate radio tends to be centered around urban areas such as... Toronto, yet there's no mention of pirate radio in Canada. Does anyone have any info? Matt Deres 03:56, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Entry with inappropriate tone[edit]

  • Channel 1 FM 91 of Bakersfield, California ran 24/7/365 in the early 1970s. Powerful 24/7 volunteer on-air staff, engineered by well-known "legal" local DJs on other AM (KERN-AM 1410, KAFY-AM 550 and KUZZ-AM 970) stations, played total crazed-out rock'n'roll. DJs included Head, Suite Irene, the Emperor of Wyoming, the Moonshadow, Hot Rod and many others. Collapsed due to exhaustion, little money, restlessness and sex triangles in late 1976 after a try at cable-only and as a school.
Though this sounds awesome, it's pretty silly wording for an encyclopedia. Some sources would also be nice. —Keenan Pepper 01:50, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Partial list of pirate radio stations in the United States[edit]

Can someone please clean-up or remove this section as per WikiGuidelines? --Crash Underride 16:53, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Voice of the Sea Cucumber?[edit]

I find this station rather interesting. However, when I tried a google search on this station, I got no results for it other than this wikipedia page. Is there any proof that such a station existed?--Namesrich1990 (talk) 14:51, 27 November 2010 (UTC)


If this article is supposed to be about North America, why is there no mention at all of Canada? Certainly pirate radio exists (there was some kid south of Ottawa on 91.9 a few years back), quite apart from the whole TV question (Star Ray TV, for instance). 2001:5C0:1000:A:0:0:0:783 (talk) 04:12, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
