Post Jobless DJ set up pirate radio show to air talents Reply with quote
By JOHN INNES

Thursday, 23rd October 2003


A COURT heard an unemployed DJ described as the Boys from the Black Stuff character, Yosser Hughes, after he set up a pirate radio station to attract the attention of commercial station management.

David Holgate formed New Skool FM from his bedroom in a Glasgow tower block to showcase his skills across the airwaves.

Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday heard that Holgate, 26, wanted to impress management at Radio Clyde and Beat 106 FM with his DJ talents.

Defending, Derek Williamson told the court: "Mr Holgate was fed-up being out of work and decided to buy equipment to set-up his own radio show. It was akin to the desperate man from Boys from the Black Stuff, who was always asking 'gissa job'.

Licensing authorities heard the broadcasts last June in a crackdown on
pirate stations.

Investigators found the transmitter and Ł300 worth of mixing decks in
Holgate's bedroom in Knightswood. The equipment was seized and later
destroyed.

Holgate pled guilty to a breach of the Wireless and Telephony Act.

Temporary Sheriff Ronnie Watson agreed with Holgate's lawyer that the
station had been set up with "the best intentions".

Admonishing him, the Sheriff said: "I do not know what harm you were causing
to anyone. With your guilty plea and the fact your equipment will be
destroyed, I do believe you have been punished enough."

I thought that Hiltler passed away a long time ago..But apparently he was replaced by A big greed conglomerate that sways the The legal system to add insult to injury..Now it is in situations like those, where i would find it rather amuseing to re-visit Scotland and rattle some "Quilts" over there and play a symphony of "PIPERS AT THE GATES OF DAWN" and give them a wake up call to remind them that they need to respect the desires of the common folk.
