Your truth free from fear:

- no anorak victims here!

"The big difference between Anorak Nation and the many other anoraky boards is that the discussion can get into the finer details of subjects 'cos there's a lot of experts, good ideas and wonderful experiences being shared.

It's all with a good sense of fun, friendship and respect.

Most importantly Anorak Nation has none of the gratuitous bullying and victimisation that other places allow or encourage."

About Anorak Nation:

We are a collective ('Nation') of enthusiasts ('Anoraks') of gadgets, boys toys, technology, tv, film, new media and communication, especially real radio - free radio born of the pirate radio stations.

If you are an early adopter, putting all your cash into the purchase of the next big thing in 'tech', a collector and lover of gizmos old or new, or a 'web-head' exploring the latest social media and 'cloud' developments, then you've found your home.

It's also your home if you enjoy film and tv, or if you're tired of bland, boringly presented, syndicated radio stations run by a badly programmed computer, playing the same few safe old songs over and over again.

Centred on our discussion, Anorak Nation offers feeds of UK media and new technologies news, debate and lively exchanges of views and more.

Remember: You cannot see the current poll, start a message or reply to others unless you are logged-in.

Re: AM/FM London pirate radio site update

That's appreciated Steve, some good memories revived. It's a shame that radio kaleidoscope didn't last into the 80s. Thameside filled the slot nicely though.
