    Also being featured on Radio Free Wales will be the story of Pirate Radio during the 1960s and 1970. I will be looking at how the Pirates had a big influence in the music being bought by teenagers.

    At the age of 15' I started to buy my records from the Oldest Record Shop in the World Spillers Records. Every Friday afternoon many of DJ's including myself would meet inside Spillers to try and be the first to try and be the first one to buy a certain new release to be played at their club in Cardiff.
    Each of us thought of it as Fun' there was never any bad words between any of the other DJs…
