Globe FM LogoOne of the biggest ever pirates in the East Midlands, indeed at the time probably one of the biggest pirates outside London, was Globe FM.

The station started in October 1991 on 101 FM. When Classic FM started they made a brief move to 105.3, before settling on 107.7.

They had a run of nearly three years, during which time the station had several complete turnovers of personnel and was raided relentlessly. This ultimately resulted in the station’s demise and a suspended sentence for it’s, by then, sole manager and owner.

Globe FM never saw itself as a pirate, they often used the term unlicensed broadcaster, and strived for quality.

The station nurtured its talent and gave birth to countless careers, with ex-Globe alumni now working for the BBC, the four major commercial radio groups and across all media. Some remain plying their trade in night-clubs, internationally.
