Radio Jackie - FM 107.8 - South West London

The Sound of SW London

Radio Jackie is South West London's original pirate radio station. The first broadcast was in March 1969 from a studio in Sutton and lasted for ... See more just 30 minutes. Within a short while Radio Jackie was on the air every Sunday giving a growing band of listeners their first taste of truly local radio. On 7 March 1972 a cassette recording of Radio Jackie was played in Parliament, during the committee stage of the Sound Broadcasting Bill, as an example of what local radio could be like. As new London wide radio stations were licensed in the early seventies Radio Jackie stayed true to the ideal of local radio based in South West London. Community events and charity fund raising were a key part of the station's output. Sutton Eye Hospital, Queen Mary's Hospital for Children in Carshalton and the Royal Marsden Hospital were all beneficiaries of Jackie's on-air fundraising efforts. For the first time local businesses were able to advertise on the radio to a relevant audience in a cost-effective way.
