"The reason for true ship based, and of course fort based, offshore radio has always been that it is free of governmental control and interference." (Chris Edwards in Offshore Echo's Magazine Issue 98)

"Als de autoriteiten tegen iets zijn begint het bij mij te kriebelen." (Gerard van Dam, Radio Day 2012)

"I can't understand the Government's attitude over the pirates. Why don't they make the BBC illegal as well - it doesn't give the public the service it wants, otherwise the pirates wouldn't be here to fill the gap. The Government makes me sick. This is becoming a Police State. They should leave the pirates alone. At least they've had a go, which is more than the BBC has done..." [George Harrison in an interview with Ray Coleman in Disc (August 6th, 1966).]
