PCRL (People's Community Radio Link) was a pirate radio station in Birmingham, UK. It began in 1985 as an attempt to quell civil unrest during the Handsworth Riots.[1]

In February 2002, the station was accused of causing interference to the emergency radio system used by West Midlands Fire Service.[2]

PCRL closed in February 2004 after the station organisers were ordered to carry out community service and "prime mover" Cecil Morris was given a suspended prison sentence for illegal broadcasting.[3]
