"I've always believed that the best treat for people who enjoyed the old days of Caroline is not to replay old clips again and again, or talk endlessly about the ship, but to do what the people in those old programmes were actually doing – play great music, some well known, some less so, and present it in a warm and friendly style. Next time, we've got to actually 'do' radio instead of just talking about when we used to do it..."
Steve Conway – February 1999
(Following the demise of EKR {on the Astra satellite}, which used to transmit Caroline overnight)
