Just to correct your review of The Who’s album The
Who Sell Out (RC issue 361), the jingles used
were not mock ones but actual jingles used by the
pirate station Radio London, also known as Big L.
Recorded, in the main, by PAMS of Dallas, the station
was on air from December 1964 to August
1967, broadcasting from the MV Galaxy off the
coast of Essex. Anyone interested in these jingles
and wanting to know more should visit
http://www.pams.com/ or the book Pop Went The
Pirates written by Keith Skues.
