Robin Adcroft / Banks Robin Adcroft From Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Robin was a fan of the sixties offshore stations and was lucky enough to visit Radio 390's Red Sands Fort in 1967. (There is a photo of him on the fort in David Sinclair's photo album.) Robin was fascinated by the place and in 1968, whilest working at Twickenham Films Studios, he encouraged director Dick Lester to film some of his movie The Bedsitting Room (which starred Spike Milligan) on the fort. Unfortunately lack of finance prevented this. There were also unsuccessful plans to use the fort as a discotheque or hotel. Robin followed his interest in radio by becoming involved with various land-based pirates and, in January 1973, joining Radio Caroline, soon after the ship had returned to the air. He was originally employed as an engineer but soon found himself presenting programmes too. In August 1973 he moved to Radio Northsea International where he changed his name to Robin Banks. He stayed with RNI until its closedown the following year and then worked aboard its ship, the Mebo II, preparing her for a planned future as Radio Nova International. When these plans were foiled, he worked with Spangles Muldoon in his electronics firm, with Robb Eden in Dutch clubs and as an engineer for Rank Xerox. He then moved to the Voice of Peace, the offshore station anchored of the coast of Israel, before returning to the Mebo II, which by this time had been sold to the Libyan government. In the eighties he worked as a transmitter engineer in Ireland and was involved briefly in the early days of (eighties offshore station) Laser-558.
