Rinse FM celebrates 18th birthday

DJ Geeneus is remembering the first ever Rinse FM radio broadcast, as a pirate station, in September 1994. "One of my friends got their first flat, so we were like, Great, we'll stick the studio in the kitchen, 'cause you're not going to be using your kitchen that much… We was 18 floors up and we put the aerial out the balcony window, moved it around… And then the front door come flying off and some old geezer come flying in, screaming at us, going, 'My telly!' He was watching the rugby and he could hear our radio station coming through his telly!"
