Cornell Campbell on RJR

RJR is one of the most difficult pirate stations to catch in London because of its proximity to BBC Radio One, which is so wide on the FM dial that it bleeds heavily onto this station’s frequency. Most of the time it’s impossible to receive RJR’s signal without some distortion. However, I managed to make a one hour recording when this interference seemed minimal. Sadly this recording doesn’t contain Cornell Campbell’s full show but that reminds me of a time when most tapes were 45 minutes on each side so you couldn’t record a complete two-hour set onto a single tape.
