This study attempts to shed light on the profile of Greek radio pirates in the 1980s. The study draws on a series of 34 in-depth interviews with radio pirates of that period in Thessaloniki, a city of particular interest for the growth and development of the pirate radio phenomenon in Greece. Some of the most important topics on which the interviews focused were respondents' educational, social and economic backgrounds, besides exploring the definition of a pirate and the motives for broadcasting pirate radio. Qualitative analysis was used to explain the results of the interviews.
