WBCQ celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Radio Caroline with special programming
On March 28, 1964, Radio Caroline began broadcasting on 199 meters (1520 KHz) from the MV Caroline , anchored off the coast of England. Radio Caroline went on to revolutionize radio and popular music in the United Kingdom and the world, and influenced an entire generation.
