The pirates would like to say thank you to few of our friends:


Firstly, the wonderful team at OJO Solutions who produced our awesome website. We cannot praise these guys highly enough, they listened to what we wanted, worked tirelessly to deliver and responded to endless last minute change requests without the slightest hint of a grumble.


To Patrick Hart and everyone at Bristol's award winning community station BCfm Radio we must say a special thanks for their kindness and support. BCfm champions the diversity of cultures in our fine city, and nowhere is this more evident than the mighty One Love Breakfast show, which you can hear from 7am every weekday morning, worldwide on Pirate Nation and across Bristol on BCfm Radio 93.2FM and Ujima 98FM.



Special thanks must also go to our voice talent Leah Marks and Matthew Tosh. Leah's sultry rendition of 'PirateNation - The Sound of Free Radio' has become synonymous with Pirate Nation through our jingles, and Matthew's voice is now intrinsically linked to the Pop Pirates. Matthew coined the phrase 'Ear Entertainment with No Containment', which fits perfectly and we love it. These guys are brilliant at what they do and are really nice people, so if you need some voice acting, head over to their websites and tell them the Pirates sent you: Leah Marks | Matthew Tosh


We must also send our love to the Shoutout Radio team. Shoutout is the South West's premier show produced by and for for the regions LGBT community, and were the very first people to recognise that Pirate Nation was a proper radio station by allowing us to share their work with our listeners. Originally the brainchild of part-time Pirate Terry Starr (and yes, that is his real name), Shoutout shares Pirate Nations insistence on only the highest production standards and is always a hugely entertaining listen. Even if you aren't a member of the LGBT community we would urge you to tune in live every Thursday at 7pm on Pirate Nation & BCfm 93.2FM, and repeated on Pirate Nation on Saturday afternoons at 5pm. For more information, pop over to the Shoutout website.


The captain would also like to mention Great George at this point. If you don't know, Great George is the beautiful bell who sits atop the Wills Memorial Building and keeps Bristol to time - he also has a bit of a crush on MV Emily's little bell. George is an avid Twitter fan and is always ready with a helpful re-tweet. You can check out George's sparkling wit on his Twitter feed and find out more about the Wills Memorial Building at their website.


Last but not least, a great big thank you to the pirates themselves, and our listeners, without either of which we certainly wouldn't be here, we will keep broadcasting as long as you're listening ...
