* 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.

* [[http://www.radiocaroline.co.uk/ Radio Caroline]], described in the opening section, originally broadcast from 1964-8, but made less-publicized comebacks from 1972-80 and 1983-90. In the 90s it began broadcasting legally from a land-based studio via satellite and later the internet.

* 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.

Pirate radio often captures people's imaginations because it symbolizes resistance to the powers that control popular music or access to information. To use the Radio Caroline example again, it shot to popularity in the swinging '60s (as did Radio Luxembourg) because British listeners were fed up with the record companies' control of what music was played on the radio. Pirate radio is often portrayed as the VoiceOfTheResistance, if not against the government, then against the conformity of mainstream popular culture.
