Thameside Radio was a pirate radio station launched in the winter of 1977  which offered "very slick pop rock with competitions", according to Time Out magazine. According to the Richmond and Twickenham Times, they broadcast from "a certain Notting Hill tower block"  – a reference to Trellick Tower.
The station received "30-40 letters each week" and the Richmond and Twickenham Times estimated listenership at "some 20,000 listeners". It pioneered new music and is noted by the New Musical Express for giving airplay to "Win a Night Out with a Well-Known Paranoiac" by Barry Andrews which was subsequently picked up by BBC Radio 1.
