The proposed Radio Sovereign with ex-RNi DJs has not started.
Monday 22 November 1971
At about 8.50 Leo van der Goot interrupted the Peter Holland show to tell listeners that the Mebo 2's anchor chain had broken and that the ship was drifting towards land. At 9.20 the station went off the air. A reserve anchor proved to be of no use. The lifeboat Bernhard van Leer was put on standby and, at about 15.00, the tug Smitbank managed to get a line across to the Mebo 2 and started to tow the ship. Apparently the Mebo 2 had been only five minutes away from going onto the rocks. Programmes restarted shortly after 16.00 with Nico Steenbergen on Driemaster. By 23.00 the Mebo 2 is about 60 miles from land.
Programmes this evening follow the same schedule as Saturday up to close down at 3.00 and newsreaders are Paul May, Brian McKenzie and Terry Davis.
Tuesday 23 November 1971
The Mebo 2 is still on tow, but a tender does manage to reach it to take off Leo van der Goot and bring back Hans ten Hooge. There is a Skyline special after normal programmes finish at 3.00, presented by Joost Verhoeven. News is read by Paul May, Brian McKenzie and Terry Davis.
Wednesday 24 November 1971
The ship returns to its position 4 miles off Scheveningen, but will remain on tow until a new anchor is fitted (at a cost of 8,000 pounds). The programme schedule and newsreaders are the same as last night, including a Skyline Special.
Thursday 25 November 1971
Mike Ross and Paul May go on shore leave and Dave Rogers and Rob Eden return to the Mebo 2. Programmes become:
