Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Radio City was a British pirate radio station that broadcast from Shivering Sands Army Fort, one of the abandoned Second World War Maunsell Sea Forts in the Thames Estuary. In 1964, following the launch of Radio Caroline, Screaming Lord Sutch announced his intention to start his own pirate radio station. On May 27 Radio Sutch began broadcasting on 1542 KHz from the south tower of Shivering Sands. It was a low-powered, low-budget operation, and Sutch soon became tired of it, selling the station to his manager Reginald Calvert for a reported Pds. 5,000. Calvert bought new equipment and expanded the station into the other towers. One of the original seven towers had been destroyed when a ship collided with it, leaving the northernmost tower isolated. The remaining five were connected by catwalks in an irregular star shape. Calvert''s team set about repairing the catwalks and refurbishing the fort''s facilities and living quarters. New studios were built, a more powerful transmitter installed, and the station experimented with new antenna configurations and frequencies (1034 and eventually 1003 KHz).
