If you were listening to pirate radio stations from the Netherlands during the 1990s you will be familiar with the name Derek Taylor. He ran the Dutch Pirate Radio Service from Preston in the north-west of England, putting listeners and dxers in touch with the pirate operators on the other side of the North Sea. You could not listen to the top of the mediumwave band without hearing his name, together with a mention for his wife Linda.
The Media Network show on Radio Netherlands picked up on this story and on October 18 they ran a feature on Derek and the Dutch pirate radio scene. Click here to listen to the whole show and get a real feeling on nostalgia.
