London's Pirate Pioneers tells the story of the capital's pirate radio stations and the people who helped change the British broadcasting system. From the early hobbyist operations of the 1960s to the big commercial enterprises of the 1980s. From suburban bedrooms to open fields to urban tower blocks. From hippies to soul boys to ravers. The book weaves together a year-by-year account of the developments in London's radio with the stories of the key stations. It explores the political, social, musical and technological changes that were to influence each stage in their evolution. Photos from every era take you behind the scenes to see the DJs and engineers at work and the book gathers together flyers and promos from many of the leading stations. Stephen Hebditch was editor of TX / Radio Today, the most popular pirate radio magazine in eighties London, and has continued documenting the pirates at amfm.org.uk.

The advance of digital technology is creating whole new markets and industries. Telecommunications is merging into media; information is blurring into entertainment; and commercial ventures of all types are being pulled into the amorphous space of the internet.Pirates, Prophets and Pioneers examines how these new technologies are pushing at the boundaries of existing rules and how governments are likely to respond to them. Using material gathered from four years of academic research and confidential interviews, Debora Spar brings us inside the world of business and politics in the digital age. In the process, she also takes us back in time, to explore to older technologies and earlier battles. Looking at the advent of radio and telegraphy, the rise of trans-oceanic trade and the development of satellite television, Spar finds striking parallels to our own time (for example, online music and software wars) and critical lessons for both business and politics.
