The book appears to be a reprint of a book called "The Radio Caroline Story from the Inside" which was for sale in 2002. In 2010 it's title "The Ship That Rocked The World" with the subtitle "The inside true story" again implies, that Tom Lodge is going to lift the curtain to let us have a look behind the scenes. The year before, 2009, the movie "The Boat That Rocked" set sail onto the screens. Honi soit qui mal y pense.

After going through about 240 pages easy to read but long-winded pages, I learnt quite a lot about Tom Lodge himself and the music, that he did fancy during the sixties. The ships, the Caroline organisation and all the other DJ's did appear to me as a setting for a storyline with Tom Lodge as the protagonist of the rock and roll radio revolution in the UK. That was not quite what I expected from the labeling. With an autobiographic like title you would come closer to the content of the book.

It does, however, still deserve a slot in the collector's bookshelf, for it lets you get a feeling of the changes that Rock 'N' Roll brought to the youth at the time and the role, that the pirate radio stations obviously played. Emphasis is put on the style that made - and still makes today - a radio show successful: do everything with full attention. Be it the records, the jingles, the adverts and the linking announcements: it had to be a harmonic stream of lively sounds, dedicated to each single listener, to whom the DJ was to connect.

Between the lines the book also depicts the dilemma that Ronan O'Rahilly always was in. On one hand, he wanted to give freedom of choice to both the listeners and the DJ's. On the other hand, this can only be afforded as long as somebody is paying for the show.

HASH(0x8e8a26c0) von 5 Sternen 'Rebellion For Dummies' 8. Januar 2011
Von Tom Maguire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Tom Lodge is an authentic, modern-day 'adventurer'. Throughout his life he has never failed to pick up and make-use-of new, "forward-moving" opportunities which were presented to him, regardless of the "oblique angle" changes these may have caused in his life.
In retrospect, it does seem that he was the perfect choice to be the Head Program Director for the original staff of Radio Caroline (circa 1964-'68).
This book (and its 'setting') gives the reader a sense of the more 'quaint' innocence of that time, as compared to our modern world.
The BBC had total control over the radio programming on land in Britain at that time, and refused to play anything but the most boring, staid music. Without the 'young upstart' rebelliousness of Radio Caroline, 'surpassing' the laws of the land and introducing untold numbers of newly-recording British bands - I think it's fair to estimate that probably 80% of the British Invasion would not have 'been allowed' to formulate in England(!), let alone ever being spread across the world. (The BBC would definitely, at that time, never have played the Stones. the Who, Kinks, Yardbirds, Animals, Cream, Zeppelin, etc. - The "cutting edge" of modern musical innovation from that time period of Tom Lodge's tenure as head program director/deejay with Radio Caroline, 1964-'68).
In regard to the British government's 'stranglehold' on the creativity of their own populace - it is reasonable to bear in mind that Britain's last war with Germany had had disastrous effects upon London itself (physically), and had left England economically 'constrained' and restricted (food rationing imposed, etc.) for a lengthy time period after the war. From this factor we can conclude two things: -a- The British government could have been still perceiving their "airwaves"/radio as needing to be stiffly controlled, (partly as "habit" from war-times, but also due to the important role that radio had played in the outcome of the war). -b- The British youth would have become focused upon using their own creative wiles to free their own lives from those extremely drab, boring and financially fruitless times, after the war, (through the 50's) in England.
Tha repression of after-war life in England had virtually caused a "pot-boiler" of pent-up creativity among its youth. Without Radio Caroline there to 'give voice' to all their dreams, not only would the world have missed this creative musical outpouring - but there's no telling what those poor blokes themselves (young musicians) would have had to suffer through (living 'unfulfilled lives', working away at their 'endless' day-jobs, etc.)
In reading this book one gets a glimpse at 'the workings' of a massively successful Music/Art Freedom Rebellion waged against an unreasonably restrictive 'Authority Figure'. In these present times, as the masses are 'converging' into technology (as per the "global village" effect), a little upgrading of each of our own (Individual) justified-rebellion willingness and rationale -"know-how"- couldn't hurt.

HASH(0x8e8a2714) von 5 Sternen Detailed, Interesting, and Seemingly Very Accurate 12. Januar 2011
Von Rock and Roll Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I received this book from my father for Christmas (I'm in my early 20's), and I was captivated by the story. It's extremely apparent upon reading that the author, Tom Lodge, was influential in the developing British Invasion. His encounters with rock stars (especially his interview with The Beatles, which he was given little to no time to prepare for) are fascinating stories that add to an amazing book. I found the list of tracks included in the book to be helpful in providing reference for those who weren't alive at the time like myself, or those who needed a refreshing on what tracks exactly were topping pirate radio charts in those days. Not only does the book educate the reader in important rock and roll history, it also provides tons of entertaining anecdotes and personal encounters. Whether you're a fan of rock and roll or looking to learn about origins of American pop music, this book will exceed expectations, all the while serving as a great source of entertainment. Before I read the book, I was able to find this video on youtube which previewed it pretty well: [...]
HASH(0x8e8a2b4c) von 5 Sternen Great Story ... Not So Well-Written 14. Januar 2015
Von Darrin Snider - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, obviously Mr. Lodge Isn't a novelist. As a memoir, the book is a good look into the history of the pirates. The scenes where he chose to try to recreate conversations or tell stories in a more novel-like fashion, however, are awkward and unnatural. On the whole, a worthwhile read for the rock history enthusiast interested in this seminal period, though probably not the best one on the subject matter.
HASH(0x8e8a2f18) von 5 Sternen Great book! 6. Mai 2013
Von Nicole Koster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This books gives major insight to the classic rock we know today. Without the "pirates" and Radio Caroline the world may not know many of the major musicians and bands we listen to today. This book is truly inspiring, and let's you know never quit. Always stand up for yourself even in the face of obstacles.
HASH(0x8e8a2ec4) von 5 Sternen The Original Pirate Radio! 4. August 2013

A very interesting read. I loved the music history lesson! What a great life Mr. Lodge has led, great stories about some of the greatest groups of the 60's.
