As part of their ongoing Exploration series, which has brought them to places such as the forgotten NYC and the literal underbelly of LA, the Palladium team went oversees to explore the rooftops of London’s inner city tower blocks in search of illegal pirate radio antennas. In a movement dating back to the 1960’s, the original “pirates” ran an offshore base of operations- often in anti-aircraft towers at the mouth of the River Thames.  In the video, Palladium takes a boat ride to visit these original structures.  In addition to physical exploration, the video also delves into cultural anthropology- showing how pirate radio functions today as opposed to its original inception.

As noted in a press release “While the internet is changing the landscape of radio broadcasting, the pirate’s role of breaking new music remains the same.”  London Pirate Radio is now playing here

Included in Palladium’s UK plans were  the first public screening of Palladium’s London Pirate Radio documentary film, which included performances by DJ’s and MC’s from the film, including Logan Sama, J2K, Jammer and Ms Dynamite.  Additionally,  London-based DJ Logan Sama put together an exclusive mix for Palladium (Streaming at www.palladiumboots.com).
