Vietnam War Pirate Radio Show

I’ve just found this great timepiece from the Vietnam War. It’s an entire pirate radio show broadcast by Dave Rabbit from a whore house in Saigon in January, 1971, and as Dave Rabbit says on his website:

“These recordings contain explicit material, hard acid rock music and comments about the issues of the times which were sex, drugs and rock and roll. These shows were created for the entertainment of the troops that put their lives on the line every day in Vietnam and were part of the huge Anti-War movement which was happening within the military itself against the war in Vietnam.”

The show's fascinating and the music is great.

You can download the entire show in MP3 format at 192 KBPS here.

Dave Rabbit’s still broadcasting and you can hear the original show streamed from his website here.
