The History Of Renegade Radio (How it REALLY happend) IT BEGAN IN 2003 Whilst surfing the web looking for rave flyers and pirate radio memorabilia, ... See more , Puffa surfed into Back To The Old Skool Forum and that started the ball rolling. From swapping stories with other members, tune id's and general chit chat, it soon re-stoked the flames of raving and music. It wasn't long before a pair of second hand turntables were picked up, tunes being purchased and the old vibes were flowing again. IN 2004 Puffa met Livvy and a number of the b2vos members. During this time Puffa was tuning into radio shows on break pirates, battle station and remaniss. LATE IN 2005 Dj Inferno contacted Puffa with the offer of a weekly slot on his web site Stressfactor, Puffa accepted and took the 8-10 slot on Fridays. A few months later, Inferno had no time to put into the radio due to putting his time into production and left the site in sole control of the owner B12. MID 2006 The site was hacked, B12 did not have funds or time to rebuild the site and keep it running. He was about to call it a day and shut it down. When told about the site closing down, Puffa offered to take co-ownership of Stressfactor and with Inferno's blessing, paid for the stream to keep running every month. With the radio now safe,there was still no site to replace the hacked site, so Puffa contacted his good friend Ash at Acknowledged web designs. After getting a design in his head, Puffa worked with Ash who built the website, forum and downloads section. The new Stressfactor web site was born! Over the next few months Puffa and Livvy worked hard pulling djs to join the schedule and spamming the net promoting the radio and djs. AUGUST 2007 Having covered the streaming costs, web site costs etc, Puffa was getting annoyed by the lack of help or interest from a certain "co owner" and though he owned the url, had not done anything to build the status of the site, radio or promoting the djs. This led to a number of disputes. Late in August on a friday evening, Puffa logged into the chatroom and during a discussion in private another member of the chatroom was instructed to kick and ban him from the chatroom, all passwords were changed and Livvy also got blocked leaving them with nothing after all their work, time and passion. The next morning Puffa met with Ash again and over a few beers, decided to start fresh. After contacting all he djs and explaining the situation, all but 4 of the 35 djs jumped ship with Puffa. Now Puffa was going to be sole owner of a station and was ready to take it to the competition, all that was needed was a name...... RENEGADE. A week later after being kicked from Stressfactor, the new web site was ready to go live and Puffa ran a 20 minute test on the new stream. The next evening at 6pm on saturday 8th september 2007 Renegade Radio was born with RLS broadcasting the 1st show. Shortly after the birth of renegade, Livvy was added to an msn conversation and got speaking to Patch. Patch quickly became a big part of renegade and soon became the renegade webmaster. Along with Patch a number of other members were asked to moderate the new chatroom and forum. Renegade radio fast became a success, with guest slots from b2vos djs, kool fm djs, interviews with undercover agent, benny page and other massive names from the rave scene
