So, farewell then, Dave Cash
Excellent ex-Radio London and Capital DJ
Now you've gone to that great mixing studio
In the sky
Perhaps you can restart the Kenny and Cash Show
with Maurice Cole.

I remember listening to Dave Cash on Capital Radio back in the mid 70's. He had a quiz called "Cash on Delivery" or the COD quiz I seem to remember. I think others on the station at the time were Kenny Everett and Graham Dean.

As a student I thought - along with many other youngsters - that the decision of the Wilson government in 1967 to shut down the pirate radio stations was an act of spite. But starting a career in aviation later on it was clear, when learning about nav aids, that pirates transmitting powerful signals on random frequencies was completely unacceptable.

But before then . . .

I beg to differ, but Wilson's shutting down of pirate radio stations WAS an act of spite. He could have simply introduced legislation permitting many more UK-licensed radio stations, which is what the majority of pirate stations wanted - and indeed, which is what we now have today!
