To celebrate the release of Richard Curtis’ hilarious new comedy The Boat That Rocked in UK cinemas today, QueensOfVintage.com is offering five lucky people the chance to get their hands on a retro radio and a 7” Collectors Box Set of the awesome movie soundtrack!

Directed by Richard Curtis and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Nick Frost, Rhys Ifans and Gemma Arterton, The Boat That Rocked is a comedy about the romance between the young people of the Sixties and rock and pop music. The film is about a band of DJs that captivate Britain, playing the music which defines a generation and standing up to a government that incomprehensibly prefers jazz.

In 1966, British pop music’s finest era, the BBC played just two hours of rock and roll every week.  But pirate radio played rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day with 25 million people, more than half the population of Britain, listening to the pirates every single day.

The soundtrack that rocked a nation, and a decade, includes an exclusive Duffy song, The Who, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie.

The limited edition box set includes five double sided 7” vinyls containing the biggest tracks from the soundtrack, some of which have never been cut on vinyl before.

    I live in Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent and I remember not so long ago Caroline was moored here for ages. Then she just dissapeared. Little bit of trivia for you there 😉
