Radio Jackie

Radio Jackie is back!

Okay, anyone who didn't grow up in SW London is now looking at me with the computer-mediated equivalent of the "You have just grown an extra head" expression.

Radio Jackie was a pirate radio station with which I grew up. They were definitely the best thing around on the radio, with the possible exception of Annie Nightingale's two-hour show after the Top 40 on Radio 1 on a Sunday night. I even did a trivia list for them for a little while - ten random facts every week or two for one of their DJs.

We were driving back from Portsmouth earlier on and saw a banner advertising the station, and yes! they're back! Officially started broadcasting again just this morning. Oh, huge amounts of nostalgia.
