Palladium Explores London Pirate Radio
Palladium Boots continue their documentary series with a video about London's pirate radio stations.
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.
