"In this digital age when any dilettante can show off their music taste online, the whole idea of ‘pirate radio’ seems like a ridiculous 20th century anachronism. But for millions of people in the pre-Net era, these unlicensed stations were lifeblood, doling out vital music that mainstream terrestrial broadcasts ignored and snubbed."
