Pirate radio operator fined nearly £4,000

A pirate radio boss has been ordered to pay almost £4,000 for running an illegal station and helping others with broadcasts.

Ricky Llewellyn, who runs drum and bass station Distinct FM, also allowed Hot 92, Irie UK and Sting FM to make broadcasts from his server.

The 29-year-old from Bilston appeared at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court this week charged with managing a station knowing unauthorised broadcasts were being made and helping with the running of the other three stations. He pleaded guilty to all charges, claiming he wanted to provide a service to people who had no access to the type of music he played.
