Plug pulled on pensioner's pirate radio station

Yellow Advertiser
By Charles Thomson, Basildon 14 August 2014

An OAP cancer survivor has been prosecuted for setting up a radio station to support fellow sufferers.
Brian Barfoot, 70, of Wickford, Essex, appeared at Basildon Magistrates Court last Friday, August 8, to admit broadcasting from a pirate radio station.
 He insisted he had only created the station to offer advice and support for men with cancer, claiming there was a bias in the media towards women's charities. He said complicated registration processes had deterred him from seeking a radio licence.
He pleaded guilty to one charge of establishing or using a wireless telegraphy station without a licence and one charge of being in charge of a premises and knowingly failing to prevent its use for unlawful broadcasting.
He ran the station – named in court documents as Monster House Radio – from a unit in Russell Court, Wickford. He was ordered to pay £250 in fines, £500 in prosecution costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
