Easter weekend saw the return of ‘Radio Caroline’ to Harwich waters with non stop music (and dancing!) from BBC Radio Essex and Radio 2. The boat moored for the weekend at the end of the Ha’penny Pier and proved a really popular event, so much so that hopefully it may be repeated every year. DJ’s who were doing a turn on the decks included Tony Blackburn, Johnny Walker, Dave Cash, Emperor Rosco, Roger Day, Keith Skewes and Mike Aherne to ‘name’ drop a few.

There was a lovely atmosphere in Harwich with people on the Ha’penny Pier until the early hours of the morning – several of the DJ’s stayed at The Pier but who was old enough to remember them?

Looking ahead to the rest of 2009 in Harwich.
