Where are they now?

Hi Guys
I was around when Merseywaves and Keith the chief were around, then onto Julie in early 1988/89 when it was based on the Woodchurch. I would love to know where all the guys are from that era, lost touch with all of them before moving to Australia.
I think I may even still have my yellow shirt from Merseywaves nights out and the good all days. I remember Andy D, Roy, Tony H, Dave Collins, Bob, Paul Woods, Keith, would be great to hear from them all. Oh by the way seems to be nothing in the way of pirates down under but plenty have heard about UK pirate stations.

Shame I lost contact with all, don't even think they know I am living in Australia now.

Whats on nowadays? Just before I left there was a station started up by some of the originals but heard very little about it. Did try tracking down Martin C but failed to find him before we flew out. Been here nearly 5 years so have missed so much.

Hi Steve. Once again nice of you to drop by to the Merseypirates forum from that much nicer place, Australia :mrgreen:

As for trying to contact some of the people you mention, if you succeed then please bring them along here too, Merseypirates forum could do with more pirates and ex pirates joining :lol: But seriously if you wanna contact some of the people you mention then one possibility is at the Lazer UK web site. Here's the link; http://lazeruk.kk5.org/

Out of all the names you mention, Radar Roy and Woodsy certainly seem to be listed as being involved with the Lazer Uk outfit as they are mentioned on this web site, so it might be worth a try :) I briefly met these two guys at a recent pirate radio reunion along with a few others. I believe Keith The Chief was there too, but I missed him unfortunately. Oh and you also mention Martin C, I met him briefly there too.

As regards Radio Julie, I believe the Andy D (Dobbo) that you refer to has passed away sadly :(

You also mention a Tony H, I guess this is Tony Hollis that you're referring to, if so then I believe he is already a member of this forum. Maybe you could PM him on this forum!

You asked what stations are on nowadays. Well the only regular stations are MAR on 217 metres mw, 1386 khz AM, which is usually on every fortnight on a Sunday. The other regular station is Radio Xanadu on 107 FM, which is on every Sunday ;)

Finally Steve, did you ever do any shows for the pirates or was it security only :?:


Thanks once again for joining!

Regarding the fabulous Radio Julie days, Andy sadly passed away in August 2005.

Dave Collins can be found at The Scene, try tuning to 102.2MHz, or alternatively most nights from 10pm on the internet station .

The Scene has been known to run FM tribute nights to Julie FM in the past, featuring shows from Andy Davies, Tony West, Mark Ross, Carl W, Ken Wood, Dave Moore and others.

Shame about Andy, he was an incredibly intelligent guy. I never did a show, hung around with them in varying flats around the Wirral over the years.

I used to see various people in the pub of a weekend, but many of the 'old faces' have moved on.

Hi there 7wcr. The Andy D mentioned on this forum that is referenced to have passed away some years ago is a different Andy Davis to the one that you mention is on 7waves. There have been two Andy D's on pirate radio in Merseyside over the years ;)

Hi Brian. Nice to see your message. Some names I remember from the past there. Thanks for the memories. :D

Love your funny story about the raid. Certainly would've been interesting to hear an interview with one of the government officials, but obviously he was uptight and had no sense of humour :shock: ;)
