Ever wished for a radio station that played all those great tracks in your music collection? Wish no more, Pirate Nation is all about the music, and if it's good, the chances are we're playing it - either on the Wall Of Sound, or live from the music libraries of our presenters.


Being free radio we can play what we want, including the great stuff other stations aren't allowed to. We encourage this musical freedom of expression in our shows and if a presenter is playing a song, you can be assured they're playing it because they love it and want to share it with you.


This is our current schedule of programmes which is live, so it's updated the instant we make a change and take a look below the schedule for a brief synopsis of some of our shows:
