Comment / History:-
Alex ran the Free Radio Campaign (FRC) from his house at Rainham, Essex.

Free Radio News was a regular magazine produced by the FRC that kept people informed about the existence of the land-based stations as well as the offshore stations.Many DJs provided articles for this very popular magazine.

In the late 1960s, Radio Kaleidoscope used the FRC address to receive its mail:  Box K3A – 28 Kingaby Gardens, Rainham, Essex.

Alex has granted us permission to re-print FRN extracts from our archives.
