* In the Midwest during the late 70s and early 80s, it was Bruce Quinn's ''Jolly Roger Radio''. They played the pirate trope to the hilt. Avast, matey, here be some Pentangle and Steeleye Span fer ye! They also had a number of promos joking about how they knew they were going to get busted. They did. Quinn later [[http://www.worldofradio.com/dxld4026.txt owned WKLU Indianapolis]] and sold it for something like six million dollars. With his wife Mitzi he now owns and operates [[http://www.whum.org/page2/ WHUM]], a noncommercial freeform station in Columbus, Indiana.

* The ''Series/DangerMan'' episode "Radio Jolly Roger" featured a pirate radio station that was secretly sending messages to the DirtyCommunists from its base on an abandoned WorldWarII anti-aircraft fort in the Thames Estuary. This strange-looking structure was quite genuine, and was in fact being used by a station called Radio 390, which gets a mention in the credits. Some exterior scenes were filmed on and around the real fort, including a shot of Patrick [=McGoohan=] being winched up into the fort. Other "exterior" scenes were shot in the studio using photographic backdrops and convincing replicas of sections of the fort.

* Unbelievably enough, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_Radio Radio Vaticana]] (Vatican City official radio station) does it:
** During WorldWarII, it broadcast anti-Nazi propaganda, even giving to the world advanced warning of the Nazi rounding up Poles and Jews and forcing them into ghettos.
** More recently, Radio Vaticana's non-Italian language broadcasts, transmitted from incredibly powerful repeaters, overwrote normal broadcasts on Italian radios on the same frequency and even invaded ''door phones'' too close to the repeaters, leading to multiple lawsuits and Anonymous shutting down their website.
