| Radio kaleidoscope was always looking for ways to compete with the larger radio stations. then with all the various pirate radio stations broadcasting off the English coast a DJ was heard on Radio Caroline providing a completely new style of show(s) they were very distinctive and enthusiastic it was “The Emperor Rosko Show”, it wasn’t long before Radio-K was re-broadcasting recordings of his shows.
Soon afterwards a record company provided Radio-K with free LP’s of the Rosko shows via Buster, these were quickly put to good use and broadcast on air. All of the shows were topped and tailed using the Radio-K Jingle set produced by Mike Baker
