It scared my parents. I remember the great Elvis meltdown of '62. All that gyrating hip movement and dancing in jail. Drove granny nuts, too. Drove mom nuts, too.
Dad loved Elvis, so he was controllable.
We also had the 1910 Fruitgum Company, One Man Bands, and AM radio. All the good stuff is gone, so very sad.
I aint nothing but a hound dog and I was the person in the kitchen with Dina strumming on the old banjo.
For me Bob it was under the covers at night with a germanium crystal radio set I built myself, powered by an Ever-Ready 6 volt battery that weighed as much as my bike, listening to "Radio Luxembourg", a "pirate" radio station broadcasting off the coast of England. I believe it was an old lightship that had been put to better use. Aaaah.....memories.....

I have a minor correction to your post.
Radio Luxembourg was in Luxembourg 208 on the Medium wave. I too listened in bed under the blankets. The radio signal fluctuated dramatically. Do you remember the Pools man Victor Kayan? With his infra draw method. He hailed from that place near Bristol - "spelled K E Y N S H A M".
The pirate stations were as you say in the North Sea on international waters. One set up base in an abandoned defence fort off the Essex coast. I think it was raided at a particularly low tide when the fort was connected with England by mud flats. Most likely I'm wrong here. Radio Caroline, with its own signature tune, lasted the longest. Tony Blackburn and his fictional dog, Arnold, was a DJ on her.
It took the pirates to wake up the BBC and get them to bring out Radio 1 to meet the obvious demand for pop, rock etc music.
I do remember one pirate station asking listeners to park up along the Essex beaches and to flash their headlights towards the pirate station when asked. That stunt became very popular
As you say. .... Memories......

I watched a movie a couple of months ago with Bill Nighy called "The Boat that Rocked". Must have been neat to have that growing up.
