anyway mainly I just wanted to post about it as it really made me think. Back then, rock and pop music was only on the radio for about 45 minutes a day as it was seen as "bad". Young people would get their fix by listening to the pirates, hiding the radio under the pillow at night. Nowadays we have thousands of radio stations, not to mention music television, with every possible kind of music you can imagine. We can get any music we like with a click of the fingers, we can download, buy cds, so many options. Don't we take advantage of ths, aren't we forgetting this was fought for in a sense by the pirate radio stations? We should our gratitude for music more, by not illegaly downloading (and I am guilty of this in the past) to support our musicians, and by seeing more bands live, not just the big name bands, but your local unsigned bands. There's a wealth of talent out there, and you could catch the next big thing!
anyway, rant over! xx
