Palladium's London Pirate Radio Documentary

Most people will tell you that the internet killed pirate radio, which it did essentially, although there are still stations keeping the spirit alive, hijacking the airwaves for kicks. Footwear brand Palladium present a potted history of the phenomenon in the latest episode of their Exploration film series, going in search of the original pirates, dudes that set-up shop on shipwrecks and rusting sea forts off the coast. More current pirate radio figureheads are featured too—Rinse FM's Logan Sama and Jammer all have great anecdotes from their pirating past. There was clearly a lot of legitimate tower block climbing involved in the making of this doc, and it's worth watching the whole thing just to get to the part where the crew get taken on a clandestine mission to Flex FM's homemade rooftop antenna.
