For three years between 1985 and 1988, TX Magazine catalogued the growth of London's pirate radio stations and the fight for a free radio alternative to the bland pop of the BBC and ILR.

Later it took to the telephone network as AM/FM, adding a print newsletter and embracing the net.

This site now brings together the past issues of TX and AM/FM together with photos and memorabilia from the eighties pirates, sharing a slice of London's radio history.
